“My experience in Kahoka, and the process I went through when making work about Kahoka, showed me what is missing from our town and specifically from our school system. Many of the students are unaware of what is out there for them. I regularly think about what I would have done differently if I had known all of the degree options out there. I think it would be beneficial for students in my hometown to be exposed to different events from different areas of our University.”

“. . . Having the opportunity to share this thing that I have a passion for in my hometown was beautiful. There is not a lot of art happening there, so I was thrilled to be able to share mine. . .”

“. . . I was able to talk to local kids who have an interest in photography and art in general. I can only hope that my experience and my words became something valuable to them. . .”
