Find your target, aim, hold steady, do not miss and fire. Perfect shot. Now for just one more picture. When you think about it, photography has a lot in common with hunting; you find a target, point your ‘weapon’ at it and ‘shoot it.’
In the Amarillo College Photography Club there is a bit more finesse to the techniques used. Anyone can pick up a camera and take a picture, and anyone can join the club. Tasha Thorn, a two-year member of the club and the current president, said, “yYou don’t have to be a photography major to join;, not a lot of people know that.”

Amarillo College Vice President of Information Technology Lee Colaw has resigned from his position effective April 12.
Terry Kleffman, assistant chief information officer of the IT department, will serve as acting CIO, according to President Dr. Russell Lowery-Hart.
Colaw, also a member of the President’s Cabinet, was suspended from his daily activities and put on administrative leave for unexplained reasons about two weeks ago.
Lowery-Hart said Colaw’s situation was a personnel issue protected by law and for that reason, school officials were unable to explain the situation.
“I do not plan on filling the VP for Information Technology position for the foreseeable future, until we have real clarity on our budgets, technology and leadership needs,” Lowery-Hart said in an email.
Colaw was responsible for all aspects of telecommunications, management, technology budget guidance, strategic planning for information and resource generation.
Kleffman also will take Colaw’s position in the President’s Cabinet.
Colaw started at AC in June 2009 as dean of information technology services. He is a native of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and earned his master’s degree in computing and information services from Oklahoma State University in 1985.
