Phoenix High School students display projects at Expo

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Students at Phoenix High School in Kennewick had a chance Thursday night to show off some of their work.

It was their second all-school expo of the school year. The expos give the students a chance to present a project they've been working on for the last few months.

 Projects ranged from information on foreign countries to a 30-minute video made for the Sexual Assault Response Center that will air on Charter Cable.

"I feel really good about it. I'm very proud of myself and everyone else that worked on it. We had a group of about ten people that really buckled down and got to work and I feel really good about it," said Darrick Parker, a Phoenix student who worked on the video for SARC.

Keyes Rushing also worked on the video project.

"It was a lot at first and it was really overwhelming but after we got to it I knew everyone would be able to pull it off and it was really amazing," said Rushing.

The students at Phoenix High School are required to meet the same state learning standards as other high schools, but they do this through projects they design themselves.
