Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” ~ Margaret Mead

“A thank you from Principal Johnson” On behalf of Durand School District, specifically our elementary schools, we would like to extend a heartfelt thank you for believing in our schools and supporting the great work of the educators and students the Panther Color Run benefits.  We want you to know we are incredibly proud of our race event and are continuously amazed at the amount each of you continue to invest in our school community.  The spirit of volunteerism is strong; Panther Color Run Volunteers, Runners, Sponsors, Community Members and countless hours of preparation ensured a smooth day for all involved. panther_color_run_2014_poster_and_cups_of_color_powderpanther_color_run_2014_arkansaw_schoolWe now have a growing experience that is becoming a staple during Arkansaw Park and Creek Days. We heard countless times today, “I can’t wait for next year; this was such a wonderful time”.  An event that unifies our families, students, staff, neighbors, community members, and friends all linked together by our little race.  An event that we all look forward to each summer as a celebration of the end of the school year and all donations stay with the school.panther_color_run_panther_with_flag_at_start_of_race Thank you to our many sponsors for your donations to our race:

panther_color_run_2014_start As today’s race comes to a close we will take time to reflect as a group in ways we can continuously get better. Our school Building Leadership Team will meet in August to discuss the best resources and technologies that we will purchase with the donated funds.  We keep the best interest of our students at the forefront of all we do, these young learners guide our decisions. We cannot thank our staff enough for the time, talent and energy that they put into taking on every aspect of this event. Our children are incredibly fortunate to be a part of a school family that works tirelessly to do what’s best for kids and a community that shares in our love of school; the heart and soul of who we are. Thank you again for your time and commitment to the 2014 Panther Color Run and the students it supports.  See you in the summer of 2015!

I. Love. Photography. I love it. It lightens my heart, fills my soul, and allows me to capture life the way that I see it. I constantly yearn to show life in a way that hasn’t been seen before, to bring images to people in a fresh and innovative way. My favorite focus in photography, my specialty I guess you would say, is Railroad Photography & Art. Something about the rumbling of these great, big, beautiful machines. The way they shake the earth beneath you as they rumble by, how they invade your chest and you can feel the rumble inside you. The plumes of heat on a hot day represented in a heat wave. Snaking through a western valley, void of trees or any other distracting element. Just the train, by itself, in it’s own inexplicable beauty and power. From the time I was a child, they have captured my imagination. I’ve recently gotten into portraiture a bit, and I want to bring some of my experiences with trains to that arena. To capture the power of a person, the sadness, loneliness, omniscience, pride, love, & carefree spirit in a way that hasn’t been done before. I want people to look at themselves in a photograph I have taken, and see a side of themselves that they think no one else has ever seen. Dewitz Photography is all about capturing a moment in a way that has never been seen before, capturing a beauty that some never knew was even there.
