Each Thursday, WKU’s Student Chapter of NPPA brings you some of the best images of the past week taken by our very own classmates. To submit for our weekly posts, you must currently be a WKU Photojournalism student and have taken the images or produced the video within the last week (Tuesday to Tuesday). Send your top 1-5 selections to email@example.com by our Tuesday 6:30pm deadline and our officers and attendees will pick the best of the bunch to showcase at our open meetings every Tuesday at 7pm in Lab 127.
Harlie Bryant (7) is cheered on while dancing before the WKU volleyball match against South Alabama on Friday, November 15 at Diddle Arena in Bowling Green, Ky. Bryant was diagnosed with Astrocytoma, a type of brain cancer, on April 1, 2011. In the fall of 2012, she began to hang out with the volleyball team. Now, she is treated as if she were one of their own teammates. Before each match, Bryant dances in the locker room with the team while they prepare to play. KREABLE YOUNG
