ReInvention Stories is a multimedia storytelling project that asks the question: How does a city of inventors reinvent itself? Sarah Buckingham has this week’s story.

Brenda Dewinter was laid off from her job at Wright-Patt on September 29th, 2012 and she went on unemployment. But since December she’s been pursuing an associates degree in network system administration -  at ITT Technical Institute in Dayton. 

This ReInvention Story was produced by Shawndra Jones, Julia Rechiert, Steve Bognar, and Sarah Buckingham.

ReInvention Stories is brought to you by WYSO and Localore, a national initiative produced by AIR, the Association of Independents in Radio, Incorporated – in collaboration with Zeega- with financial support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.  

Also visit ReInventionStories.org.  You’ll find a super cool multi-media, interactive website that tells seven more reinvention stories in a longer format. And that’s where you can tell your story and include your
own photographs.
