Meet Doug Novinger he finally graduated high school after 21 years. The paper I work for is doing a story on an adult with mental disabilities graduating high school. It sucks that I only got to photograph the graduation, I would of loved to of spent more time with him in class, at home, etc... but here is what I got.

This is a little start of a story that I'm going to be working on about the Diakon Youth Services Wilderness Center, outside of Boiling Springs, PA. It's a place that teaches troubled youth that were sent there through a court order,(instead of going to juvenile hall) life skills such as carpentry, horticulture and culinary arts. However, some of the that kids are sent take part in a wilderness program were they go off into the woods for 30 days with a instructor and live off the land, then left alone for 2 days.( I can't wait for that to happen, great photos to take place) Right now, the place is starting to get permission from the judges and parents to have the kids identified, so there will be more to come instead of two cheesy shots of the instructors.
