A year ago, good friend Cort Anderson and I took a Wichita State University class to Greensburg to report on the town one year after the tornado. One year later, Cort and I area headed back to document Year 2 of the community’s rebuilding process.
We’ll have new faces and new voices in the group, with the exception of one — Todd Vogts. Todd was in the class last summer, just before he graduated from WSU and started a new job as editor of The Ledger in Moundridge. He’s taking a week of vacation to accompany us and help with the class. We’re glad to have him back.
Another change is that we’ll be staying in Greensburg this summer. We’ll take up residence in the basement of Greensburg United Methodist Church, along with several dozen volunteers, during our two-week stint. We’ll arrive the Tuesday morning after Memorial Day.
Like last summer, we’ll be posting print, audio and video stories, along with photos. And, like last time around, we’re looking for story ideas, particularly those stories that haven’t been covered and involve people. We welcome your ideas.
