This morning two Metea Valley athletes sign a National Letter of intent to participate in college sports and receive an athletic scholarship.
It was senior night for Metea Valley and the seniors were honored before the Waubonsie Valley game. Jim Schmid was Principal for both schools, presently at Metea and at Waubonsie in the past. He was the person that hired the head football coach at both schools. Jim was to do the coin toss for the game, but just before the coin toss he was honored as a Super Senior because he is also graduating (Retiring) at the end of the year. It was a surprise for Jim but his family and friends made an effort to be present see him honored.
The Metea Valley Wind Ensemble need a program photo for a future performance they will take part in. As they were the last group performing in a concert last night it was the ideal time take their picture. When the concert finished the music stands were removed and the musicians returned to their position on the stage.
Sat. October 19th I assisted Michael Bathan photograph Ryan and Kristin’s wedding in Yorkville. The images below are a sample of my contribution. Some are candids others are back up images or coverage from a different angel.
Jim Schmid the principal at Metea Valley High School is retiring at the end of this year. He will have many last times – last football game – last spring break – last pep assembly and many more. He celebrated one of those last times during the football game against Geneva High School when he directed the marching band for the school fight song during the half time show.
On October 17th Audi Owners participated in an on track and auto cross driving event sponsored by Audi of America at the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, Illinois. Participants arrived at 1:30 and finished after nearly 4 hours. The event included classroom instruction, driving your own Audi on the North Track and Auto Cross layout as well as great food. The on track activities finished with driving instructors giving rides in an Audi R8 at near race speed. This was the last event of the summer and it was a little different because it rained in the morning and the staff was on the track with dryers prior to the driving portion.
Friday Sept. 16th I took the Class of 2014 at Waubonsie Valley High School. Last year fewer that 100 Students were interested in getting a photo. This year close to 250 copies have been ordered. While I would like to think it was the quality of the image last year, the increase in sales is really because parents received an order form with their registration packet at the start of the school year. This demonstrates just how important proper marketing can be.
