“Photography is a major hobby of mine,” Mitchell said. “Nature is my favorite type of photography, but I still like to take pictures of people also.”
Kemnitz, Spectrum technology arts teacher and yearbook adviser, said Mitchell took the photo in her Photography I class.
“She is interested in pursuing art in college,” Kemnitz said.
