Photo Exhibit Celebrates Partnership

Posted on: May 10, 2016

In memory of Lamar Davis who passed away on May 5, 2016.

A culmination of months of partnership and sharing between two different generations was on display on Sunday, May 15, at Modern Insurance/Opry House, 125 Main Street in Milford. More than $350 in donations were collected at the show to support Clermont Senior Services.
 
Milford High School photojournalism students, under the direction of teacher Janelle Schunk, have partnered with 14 residents at SEM Villa and have met weekly with their partners all semester.

According to Mrs. Schunk, the goal of the partnership is to provide high school photojournalism students with a meaningful real-world application of the skills they are developing in the classroom, while also providing needed connection and social interaction for senior residents in our community. Students have been collaborating with their senior partners to develop a photo story that represents the life of their partner.
