Lemon Monroe High School

LMHS Videos


The Project
Students at Lemon-Monroe High School (LMHS) have created a documentary to showcase the rich history of their school building. At the end of the 2003/2004 school year, the previous high school building closed as students moved to the new campus. It was the desire of students and staff alike to honor the building that had seen at least 120 graduating classes. The class of 2004 was the last graduating class at the old L.M.H.S.
To assist in creating an authentic documentary, students contacted former students, administrators, and community members who agreed to share the influence that LMHS has had on their lives and the local communities.
Students working on this project researched:
* Students and staff from the earlier years for potential interviews
* Historical information about the building and the district
* Information on the original building built in 1871
* Stories that highlighted the Fighting Hornet spirit
* Photos, memorabilia, etc.
The documentary was shot and edited by students throughout the school year using Sony digital video equipment and Macs and Final Cut Express and Pinnacle Studio 9.
