A million hits on YouTube could mean a recording contract, a part in a movie or a chance at some level of fame, but for Wells High School junior Morgan Brewster, she hopes those hits mean help for other students who are in her shoes. Morgan, according to her mother, Pauline Brewster, was diagnosed with a learning disability at a young age, and the news was overwhelming, she said. But through Morgan’s high school years, Brewster has seen her daughter flourish with the help of dedicated teachers and new technology. New technology, like the “voice search” option created by Google, led to a film crew coming to Wells High School last fall to follow Morgan for a week to see how Google has helped her in school. The crew followed her to class and to color guard practice after school, as well as interviewing her family and teacher.
