Two Appalachian State University graduate students recently spent time in Plains, Georgia, conducting an oral history project for the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site (JCNHS). Jennifer Cohen-Jordan and Leila Weinstein, both graduate students in the Appalachian studies program at ASU, performed a series of interviews with people close to the Carters, gaining insight into the community, social history and residents’ opinions of the 39th president of the United States.

While the pair did not get to interview the Carters, they did get to meet them.
