Local TV Station Goes 'Inside Woodlawn'

KGW8 Reporter Cristin Severance and photojournalist Gene Cotton spent the 2019-20 school year in our halls, classrooms and homes uncovering the stories of the students, staff and families that make up the Woodlawn community. 

They have continued their reporting into the 2020-21 school year, and will continue to produce episodes periodically as new stories emerge. Most recently, they checked in with two Woodlawn families to see how Distance Learning is going during the Covid-19 pandemic. ‘Inside Woodlawn: The Struggles and Successes of Distance Learning’ was released on October 13, 2020.

The full set of videos and extras can be found on KGW8’s website.
