Athens StoryCorps: Jocelyn Deal and Kathryn Kyker


Best friends Jocelyn Deal and Katherine Kyker grew up in military families and moved many times during their childhoods.  Neither of them expected they would develop a lasting friendship with anyone, but over their 40 year friendship these two have remained close and learned some valuable lessons along the way.

StoryCorps Athens stories were recorded in Fall 2018 in the StoryCorps Mobile Booth at the Athens-Clarke County Library. These interviews were recorded as part of a national initiative to record and collect the stories of everyday people.
