Past Art Honor Society President Maggie Andresen, using photography to heal

NOLA children

As many of us struggle to make sense of the senseless acts of violence in Baton Rouge, St. Paul     and Dallas over the past week, North alumni Maggie Andresen uses photography to lend a hand.

Maggie (daughter of our Librarian, Mrs. Dickerson) took this photo in New Orleans during a protest march this weekend. Maggie is interning with the Times Picayune newspaper for the summer. Her photo was picked up by Associated Press and was featured as the closing picture on last night’s ABC world news and CNN’s newshour.

Maggie graduated CHSN in 2013 and is studying photo journalism at Temple University in Philadelphia.
