The Worth Repeating storyboard is a group of dedicated volunteers who love San Antonio and can't get enough of our city's stories. These folks are constantly looking for and listening to friends, coworkers and neighbors for storytellers.
San Antonio is a big city with a diverse experience. From the homegrown to the newcomer, we want to find the stories Worth Repeating from all corners and walks of the community. We hope that having a storyboard out in the community we can better leverage their experiences to do this.
With their help, we hope we can encapsulate what San Antonio is about.
Worth Repeating would like to say a special thanks to all our past storyboard members. The show could not have happened without these people. CJ Craig--who helped form the original storyboard and show--Hetali Lodaya, Erica Hurtak, Rachel Clutter, Ryan Loyd, Elena Souris, Vanessa Paige, and Natasha Hernandez.
