Title (Max 100 Characters)
Saint James School junior Hayley White received First Place in the City of Montgomery’s 2012 “Your Best Shot” citywide photo competition. Hayley received a $500 cash award for her winning piece. The picture currently hangs in the Dexter Plaza lobby.
Twelve finalists were chosen by a panel of professional photographers, architectects, and other city officials from more than 50 submissions. Judging concluded on Dec. 13.
“I liked the picture because you could see the train shed and also Biscuits Stadium in the background,” said White, who shot the winning photo from atop the Montgomery Intermodal parking deck. “I just like that you can see so many parts of Montgomery in the picture.”
White’s STJ photography instructor Evelyn Shoults said works very hard on her photography, both in and outside of class. “I am so very proud of her and this significant accomplishment!”
White, who says she also shoots photos for the Saint James football team, expects to continue photography as an avocation, but currently anticipates studying to become an attorney.
