Wildlife book to benefit Coastal Bend College scholarship fund

Coastal Bend College Wildlife Commemorative 2011 book features the work of local wildlife photographers John Breidenbach, Jimmy Jackson, Robert Benson, John West, Albert Reynolds, Alex Kibler, Sylvia Garcia-Smith and Linda Alley. The theme of this year’s book is “One Thousand Words.”

 “This is the first time we’ve published a hardcover book,” said Susan Smedley, director of marketing and public relations at the college. “We anticipate this becoming an annual series highlighting local wildlife pictures taken by local photographers.”

 The book includes photos of Coastal Bend landscapes, animals and birds from the college’s 2011 and 2010 wildlife photo collection. Each photo was donated to the college by the photographer for the purpose of raising funds for the general scholarship fund.

 “The theme is a playing off the old adage, ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ when everyone knows that these pictures are worth so much more,” Smedley explained.

 Commemorative books are available for purchase through the CBC Institutional Advancement Office.  The cost is $42.50 each. For more information, contact Amberlee Johnson at (361) 354-2348 or johnsona@coastalbend.edu.
