TIOGA — Tioga High School’s first group of seniors since 1961 recently started classes. Twenty-six seniors have taken on the responsibility of setting an example for the younger students. The area’s high school originally shut down in 1961, becoming a kindergarten through eighth grade campus, but the community brought back the high school program in 2012.

So when I was presented with the opportunity to take pictures of Barack Obama landing at North Texas Regional Airport — Perrin Field I wasn’t really very excited. Especially since I was paying for that opportunity by, according to the media advisory we were sent ahead of time, standing on the tarmac for 2 hours waiting for him to arrive.
