Oak Ridge NC Military Academy

I like the quote above the main doors on the Oak Ridge North Carolina Military Academy chapel. Besides that, I was drawn to the soft, orange colored light reflected in the windows on either side of the doors. Sunlight was coming through side windows inside the chapel, and I positioned myself so I got some of that light in my composition. The last time I visited Oak Ridge, I had an opportunity to speak with some of those in charge. I was told that the economy has been especially tough on military academies such as Oak Ridge over the past decade, and what once was a rather large institution, has now shrunk to near 150 students, up to 12th grade. But, it remains open and is helping prepare North Carolina youth for greater things in life.
