We first checked in with students in Huntley High School’s pioneering Youth Residency Program on an episode of Huntley 158 Today in January 2017.
Today we speak with five students from the program’s inaugural year about their experiences as graduation draws near. They’ll share their favorite memories from their one-of-a-kind experience as well as how the program has helped them develop their plans for the future.
Students and their families were feted earlier this month in a recognition ceremony at Centegra Hospital-Huntley.
The program has received national media attention and has inspired other school districts to examine adding similar programs.
Students also have documented their first-hand experiences at the Residency Reflections Blog.
Watch the video below to see how the program came to fruition and go behind-the-scenes with students on rotations.
