Franklin native second in national photo contest

The Daughters of the American Revolution sponsored a national photo contest with a theme of “Rise and Shine Your Light on Your Revolutionary War Patriot.” Vickie McCall Carpenter, who is a member of the Waightstill Avery Chaper of the DAR in Brevard and a photographer, began to think how she would capture the spirit of the contest theme in a photograph. She summoned her grandson Andrew, borrowed a tricorn hat, hung a flag representing the one flown in 1776, and shot the contest-winning picture. Carpenter is the daughter of Fay McCall and the late Charles McCall. Photo by Vickie Carpenter
