A Dose of Hope in a Pandemic is a collection of photographs showing the impact of Covid-19 as a global issue captured through the individual lenses of members of our communities. Every shot depicts a significant moment in somebody’s life during the pandemic. Jody Hale and Lindsay Powers, art and photography teachers at Dunlap High School selected the winner submissions as follows:
1st – Nikki Vulgaris – Staying Safe
2nd- Leanne Cusack – Remote learning in December
3rd – Anne Sarco – Help from Leo the dog
While unfortunately we could not display them all, we hope you will enjoy what you see!
