Video created by an alumnus and staff member of the Kansas State University Polytechnic Campus is featured in the Flint Hills Discovery Center exhibit "Going Home: Hidden Histories of the Flint Hills," on display through Jan. 8.

Produced by K-State's Chapman Center for Rural Studies, the exhibit tells the story of what "home" means to people living in the Flint Hills. Bonnie Lynn-Sherow, curator and executive director, enlisted the help of Khaled Abduljabbar, a Polytechnic Campus alumnus in digital media technology, with filming editing the video and promotional clips.

Some footage was captured using a UAS, or drone, by Travis Balthazor, Polytechnic Campus' UAS flight operations manager.

"It was great to help visually tell the history of small Kansas towns," Balthazor said.

"Going Home" is on display until Jan. 8 at the Flint Hills Discovery Center, 315 S. Third St., Manhattan. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
