Event Phothographer | Shelley Edwards Photography

So last weekend I attended Newman Smith High School, Class of 1985’s reunion – I was there as their event photographer. I’m actually an alumni of Newman Smith (Go Trojans) – so it was really fun seeing some of the peeps. Then again, when I was a senior, they were freshman, so I probably didn’t notice them much.  It didn’t really feel right selling CDs to my friends from the event, so I decided that it’s time to pay things forward.  Life has been really good to me lately, so all profits from the sale of the event CDs will be donated to Operation Smile (www.operationsmile.org).  It’s a great organization that helps children who have facial deformities.  So NSHS friends – please contact me if you want to help us create a smile!

Let’s see – in 1985 – what was going on?
