Four WWII veterans from Floyd County graciously agreed to talk about their experiences with high school students in the place-based education oral history program here. The interviews with Clarence Goad, Burnett Marshall, Arlie Thompson, and Sammie Phillips all took place on one day at the Hotel Floyd. The students were well-prepared--with the help of Radford University student mentors, volunteers from the Old Church Gallery, and their Floyd County High School class teacher, the students learned and practiced professional interviewing techniques, camera and audio operations, as well as their individual roles for the production.
