PIER by Khan Le FULL BLOSSOM by Juan Lozano SURREAL TREE by Dylan Montgomery D uring the month of May the photography students from Sobrato High School displayed 30 photos at the Morgan Hill Community Center. This was the first time the students had an opportunity to professionally display their work. For retiring photography teacher, Jim McDonald, the event marked the culmination of his long career in education and a final goal for his photography class. In all, Jim spent 47 years in education, 27 as a principal in Morgan Hill and the last 10 years as a photography teacher at Sobrato High. Through grant funding and personal donations the students were able to get professional prints and framing for this project. The plan is for the exhibit to become an annual event. Jim McDonald and fellow photography teacher, Demetrio Messoloras, selected the entries and oversaw the printing and framing of the photographs. The photographs are available for purchase by contacting Jim McDonald at GILROY • MORGAN HILL • SAN MARTIN AUSTIN by Wiley Wong JULY/ AUGUST 2015 63
