Oxford One Year Later

  • The past year has looked vastly different for people throughout Oxford. Teachers say they fear their breaking point. Parents have grown weary of their schools. Students continue to look for ways to cope with their shared trauma.
  • Around Oxford, Justin Schilling was known for his bright and outgoing personality. After he was shot and killed in a school shooting last year, his closest friends have tried to keep his memory alive as they make sense of their own experiences.
  • Steve and Reina St. Juliana sat across from each other at their family dining table to share memories of Hana St. Juliana — daughter and sister — and to talk about the toll that this year has taken on them. It’s clear in their voices that they’re tired.
  • Zoe Touray and Aubrey Greenfield are both survivors of the Oxford shooting. In the aftermath of the tragedy, Zoe, now an Oxford alumna, and Aubrey, a current senior, both became involved in gun reform activism.
  • Oxford High School teachers Lauren Rambo and Melissa Gibbons sat down with each other for a conversation about what it’s like to teach after a mass shooting and why they want to share their perspectives.
  • On today's show, a discussion about what a divided Congress means for Michigan's auto industry. We also got the scoop on one of the state's greatest comeback stories: the wild turkey. Plus, it's football season. We heard the tale of a 1970 pickup game that took an unusual turn. Then, a quick update on the Patmos library. We ended with an essay written and read by an Oxford high shooting survivor.
