Shorewood High School
After leaving Warrenton, Oregon, my family moved to Seattle, Washington where I graduated from Shorewood High School in the Shoreline School District. Shorewood High School has a student body population of approximately 1700 students, a big difference in size from the 300 students at Warrenton High School. In 2009, Shorewood High School students put the school on the map by making a YouTube video that was nationally recognized for its creativity. Accepting a challenge from its rival district high school, both schools created a lip-sync video done in a single, unedited take, known on the InterWebs as a “lip-dub.” The challenge which may have once appeared uninteresting to the outside on looker, became a viral media buzz when Shorewood High School students made their video completely in reverse, including having to sing their lyrics backwards! Check out the video and a look around my old high school stomping grounds!
