StateImpact is on a listening tour with Oklahoma’s youth. And we’ve brought along our microphones.

StateImpact’s Robby Korth and OPMX's Kateleigh Mills talked to a couple of Tulsa high school students about race, gender and how they interact with their peers at school.

Dykota Williamson and Melanie Lara-Valladolid are involved in the Tulsa Changemakers program. The organization introduced StateImpact to them.

Robby Korth grew up in Ardmore, Oklahoma and Fayetteville, Arkansas, and graduated from the University of Nebraska with a journalism degree.
Kateleigh Mills joined KOSU in March 2018, following her undergraduate degree completion from the University of Central Oklahoma in December 2017.
