A screenshot of a photo group shared by the RCC Marketing department, Congressman Mark Walker read about the RCC photo program in the Our State magazine last month and wanted to see it first hand. With the boss in a lecture out of the department, I got the tour guide role with the school President… Mr. Walker seemed knowledgeable about imaging and interested in what we do. I had a lecture and high school tours so I went in 2 hours early to prep, wished I remembered I was leading the Congressman’s tour when I got dressed that morning!
New photos for my classroom/ PJ newsroom. Photos from graduates of the program since I started and where they work now!
