A Survivor’s Tale
Over the summer, my friend Lexy interned at the Lexington Herald-Leader and wrote a powerful story (and column) about Missy Jenkins Smith and her rehabilitation from the 1997 shooting at Heath High School that left her paralyzed from the chest down. I was hired as freelance photog to visit Missy during a physical therapy session. I’ve included a few images below, and there’s also a gallery on the Herald-Leader site here. The story ran on the front page of the Sunday edition, and jumped to fill the entire second page.
