Arizona Storytellers: Liz Warren
KJZZ partners with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers series. We record the live events and share them with you on the radio. In Phoenix, the storytellers sometimes share stories about our community or the life events that have shaped them in general. Megan Finnerty is the creator of the series.
Liz Warren is from Gilbert, Arizona, and when she was 16 years old she joined the dress code committee at Gilbert High School to change the outdated rules.
After surveying the students and their parents, it was clear that many people wanted to embrace the change. But before the proposal was brought to the Governing School Board, an article came out in the Gilbert Round-Up.
Liz Warren is a writer, teacher and the director of the Storytelling Institute at South Mountain Community College and one of the founders of the Arizona Storytellers project.
You can hear more stories like this at our next night of live storytelling on March 4, 2015, at the Phoenix Art Museum.
