I received an email earlier this semester saying the Honors College needed photojournalism students to apply to shoot for the Honors newsletter, Arête. It seemed like a good deal to me, so I applied and was accepted soon after. (Happy day!)
My favorite assignment I had with Arête this semester was shooting the Homecoming festivities. It was my job to follow the Honors candidate, Whitney Montgomery, and show her Homecoming preparations and experiences. I went to the parade with Whitney where I met her sweet family and her “little sister” from Big Brothers/Big Sisters who joined her to ride along in the convertible.
The coronation during half time of the Homecoming game was a lot of fun to shoot and the energy was awesome. I really had a great time and learned a lot from this experience. (It was full of great storytelling moments!)
To top it all off, WKU won the football game and we got to rush the field when it was all said and done. Homecoming was a lovely weekend and I’m glad I have meaningful pictures to remember this exciting experience!
