Senior Stories Norton – First UMC, Winter Park


;

First UMC, Winter Park sponsored a project called Senior Stories, where high school students were paired with older adults. The students were coached in intergenerational communications by Prof. Ann Stone of Rollins College. The student and adult pairs met over multiple times to get to know each other. The goal was for the student to acquire valuable life lessons from the life experiences of the adult. In their last session together, the pair were videoed. The edited videos were shown at a special luncheon, where the student also presented a collage that they had made of the older adult's life. The attached is one of the nine edited videos that was produced.
