In December of 2005, WVU Journalism Professor Bonnie Stewart traveled with three students to New Orleans, La. The crew embarked on this journey to follow several Hurricane Katrina evacuees who were returning home after being evacuated to West Virginia. The students encountered so many stories of destruction and despair, it was difficult to choose which stories to cover. In this piece, Professor Stewart reflects on her experiences traveling through the flood-ravaged city.
