Raytown South High Student Selected as KC Storyteller Scholar

Raytown South High Student Cara Bray-Howard has been selected as a KC Storyteller Scholar.

As part of the program, Bray-Howard will participate in two writing workshops with students around the metro to find and share stories, to hear and be a part of stories in the community, and to help break down the divisive barriers, both real and imagined. KC Storytellers is sponsored by the Greater Kansas City Writing Project through the University of Central Missouri.

Bray-Howard was nominated by Raytown South teacher Megan Willet and selected by a committee from the University of Central Missouri’s Greater Kansas City Writing project.

“Cara is a conscientious student that cares about her community,” said Raytown South High teacher Megan Willet. “I nominated Cara for KC Storytellers because she is a talented writer that has a penchant for activism, and I believe that Cara's participation in the program could aid in the breaking down of barriers that exist across the Greater Kansas City Metro.”

Bray-Howard will perform her story at a Community Exhibition. The exhibition is free and open to the public on April 6 from 7-9 p.m. at the Center for Spiritual Living located at 1014 W. 39th St, Kansas City, MO 64111.
