At the beginning of the pandemic a small group of Ypsilanti High School students and teachers came together through the arts and a discussion about youth voice, what it means, and how the voices of young people can have influence in their community. We planned through April and May of 2020 and then the students created this video and invited the community to submit artwork to say thank you to the essential workers in the community. We received over 50 submissions! Mrs. Sizemore worked with a few local Kroger grocery stores who accepted these banners of gratitude for employees. Mrs. Fisk helped coordinate with a printing company to design and produce the banners.
