Like her father, brother and boyfriend before her, 18-year-old Clinton High School senior Shanna Bock wants to join the National Guard after graduation.
Of the 610 students who attend Clinton High, 67 are members of the JROTC program which as been around for 19 years. The stated goal of the JROTC program is to put students through school. For Shanna the program provides much more; it teaches discipline, strength and stability.
She is a 2nd lieutenant and squad leader in the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program. Next month she will travel to Kansas City to take her ASVAB test for the National Guard. The test is the next step is towards her dream of becoming a combat medic.

Photography is…having goals
My main goal for the next ten years was set forth about two years ago. I decided, around my twenty-forth birthday that I was going to dedicate the next ten years of my life to the pursuit of becoming a master photographer. From that moment on everything that I have done, every decision, every choice, has been with this sole goal in mind.
One possible goal I have set for the next twenty years is to live that long as a professional photographer. I cannot see my career that far down the road, so making it as a photographer for twenty years seems like a good goal to have. Considering my passions and the issues I am hoping to document, simply surviving will be a huge accomplishment.
The next two years are fast approaching. I am actively seeking employment with a news outlet. Not because I believe in the main stream media, but because I feel that having that on my resume will help give me the creditability that I need to find the funding that will support my long term projects. I plan on applying for grants, fellowships and many other forms of funding to support my personal projects.
Within the next five years I hope to obtain a grant and/or fellowship in order to complete the kind of projects I feel attracted to. I believe that having a proven track record of personal projects, as well as a thick resume of professional work will make me a top candidate for funding. I see what top photographers are doing and I want a cut of that action.
