Cole Student Earns National Recognition for Photography

Last week, Cole photography and journalism students traveled to attend and compete at the JEA/NSPA national journalism conference in Chicago with over 6300 students from across the United States.

Junior, Raquelle Bennett competed in the Photography Portfolio division at the conference and was one of only three students in the country to receive a Superior Rating. The portfolio competition is the most difficult and competitive division, usually reserved for seniors, as students may only enter once in their high school career.

Raquelle's portfolio consisted of art-inspired portraits that were created in both her commercial photography and AP art photography classes. While judges encouraged her to remove the single life-style portrait, they were very impressed with her technical skill combined with her variety of creative approaches to all other images in the portfolio.
