Rabble Mill co-founder Mike Smith speaks about Bay High at luncheon in Lincoln

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Mike Smith, a co-founder of the non-profit Rabble Mill, was the guest speaker at the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce’s Face the Chamber event.

The Rabble Mill houses three youth programs: The Bay, Skate for Change, and Rabble Media.

Smith spoke about a new high school for juniors and seniors called Bay High.

He said the school includes the same classes that students get at any other school but what sets it apart, is the environment and the access to technology that kids have.

Smith said the school has a lot of great technology, which takes photography, video, audio and podcasting classes to the next level.

“It’s the immersive deep dive that students get into the technology that gets them excited,” Smith said. “Plus is the change of environment you get to get out of your school you get to go to a cool place and be around like-minded students.”

Bay High, which is near 21st and Y Streets, is a public school that is partnered with Lincoln Public Schools.

Smith said the goal of the school is to get juniors and seniors ready to go to college or right into the workforce.

He told business leaders at the luncheon that students at Bay High graduate from the school ready to work and have great ideas.
