Students traveled into the dimension of imagination to pay tribute to one of Binghamton’s most iconic sons.
Fifth-grade students from Binghamton elementary celebrated the annual Rod Serling Day.
Students honored the life and work of the Binghamton native and Twilight Zone creator.
The kids were also able to pitch their own ideas for new episodes and talked about who might be the next Rod Serling.
Serling’s daughter Anne Serling-Sutton shared with students the side of her father that not everyone got to see.
She says he would have really been proud knowing that the town he loved so much continues to honor him.
Anne Serling-Sutton says “This program and what these teachers do in promoting the themes in the Twilight Zone that are still so relevant and sadly prevalent today. To have this event where my dad went to school is particularly special in Binghamton a town he loved so much.”
New for this year’s event was a discussion about the Twilight Zone reboot hosted by Academy Award Winner Jordan Peele.
