Our local high school offers a full program of Photography, from pinhole to 
B & W darkroom, to digital.  They also offer evening darkroom and digital 
classes that both adults and students attend.  BUT, the teacher who drives 
this is retiring.  The classes are well-attended, and the school takes pride 
in the breadth of it's offerings, so there is hope that the program will 
continue, but we worry!
