Jerry King grew up in rural Mississippi and wanted out when he knew his life would be limited. So at 18 he joined the Army and ended up in operation Desert Shield to liberate Kuwait. 

After 10 years, he got out and worked as a policeman and enjoyed interacting with people and dealing with every person uniquely.

Eventually, Jerry joined the SWAT team and took part on 1800 missions, but SWAT was not like being a patrolman, he missed the interaction with the public.

So photography was a way to re-connect with people and bring out there story through getting the right shot. 

That was how J King Images was born and he continues to wow customers with his images.

Today I met with Diona McIntire, Dr. Tim Boone and Rebecka Kern at Park Street Elementary School. 

Diona McIntire is the principal and is called to help change children's lives. Her passion started from the beginning. She redecorated the school and on this day was wearing pajamas so the children are reminded to get "lots of rest for the test", in preparation for skills testing.

I also spoke with Tim Boone, the secretary of the PTA and coordinator of the 75th Anniversary Gala and Rebecka Kern, the PTA president and a mom of a student at the school.

Checkout the gala and the programs at this school. They are always looking for help and it is a special place. 

Attend the Park St Gala

In our second update, Stace Huff and Amanda Seals talk about the process of getting 6 homeowners to agree to have 4,000 people tour their homes.

Does it help that Stace is a therapist? You bet!

Forest Hills is a terrific place for this year's Marietta Pilgrimage. It has lovely homes that harken back to days when the roads into Marietta were dirt and central air conditioning was only a dream.

Enjoy!
