Clay Aiken – Giving Back to His Home State

The Mycenaean is a student-run newspaper from Raleigh, North Carolina. Its writers, editors and audience attend Leesville Road High School.  Today, December 15th, the newspaper posted a wonderful interview with Clay Aiken who, by the way, is an alumni of Leesville Road High School.

This is a wonderful interview with Clay and I hope you will all click on the link and let the students know how much you enjoy reading positive things about Clay Aiken.

The following is just a couple of paragraphs from the article.

Running for office–despite his defeat–was just a new way of doing it.

“People being able to say that I have used the microphone that I got to bring attention to things that weren’t getting attention brought to them, to be able to tell people’s stories, to be able to get folks to be engaged in issues they normally wouldn’t be engaged in… lives a lot longer than any CD sales,” said Aiken…

The student-run newspaper also has a twitter account and a nice tweet would be great.  I am sure the kids would love to see lots of traffic on their site.  MYCENAEANTWITTER

  2. This is a well written article about Clay in the Myceaean. Glad to see the students involved in the paper, current events and of course Clay. I just came back from a trip to Greece and we toured Mycenae. Wonder if that is the basis for the students paper's name.
