Postcards from Madison County is a special series from WUNC and The Partnership for Appalachian Girls' Education that features personal storytelling from a unique summer program for Appalachian youths.

Skylar Shelton is entering 6th grade at Madison Middle School. She is from the Spillcorn community in Laurel. Skylar’s digital story is about her love for her Mamaw, and its title is "My Whole World."

About Postcards From Madison County

Each year, the Partnership for Appalachian Girls’ Education, or PAGE, provides out-of-school learning opportunities for girls in grades six through nine.

This summer, the PAGE program gave girls a forum for telling—and recording--stories from their own lives. Their narratives are snapshots of everyday life, local culture, and family relationships in the mountains—through the eyes of a young person.
