“This is a picture I took of my dad’s hand and my grandma’s hand two days before she passed away. My grandma lived to be 94 years old, but she suffered from Alzheimer’s. Out of all the photography classes, over 100 images were considered by the school to be entered into the 2019 Scholastic Art & Writing competition. Only 16 images were chosen, and mine was one of the 16. When I was entering my picture, I saw there was another competition called “New York Life Award” which is a national competition where six pictures are chosen that show personal loss, grief, and bereavement. [Photography teacher Todd] Adams and I decided to also enter my picture into that competition to see how well it [would do]. Photography has always been a passion of mine, and it feels amazing that it is being recognized at a state and national level. To me, this picture represents love and family.” -Sophomore Kimmy Huckabee
