St. Joseph Norte Dame Senior Portrait Model, Chris, Retires & Begins Freshman Year at Howard

We have to send off another 2011 Positive Images Spokes Model into retirement in order to begin life in college. Christopher Livingston  is a very special Spokes Model because I have been taking his portraits since he was a baby and I consider him family!

 I'm still amazed that the years have flown by so quickly.
Chris moves from high school senior to Howard Freshman
Chris's Freshman year at Howard started with a BANG! A 5+ earthquake followed up by Hurricane Irene.

Christopher has chosen to attend Howard University, in Washington D.C. on a full academic scholarship.  He plans to study political science and pursue a career in law and politics. He graduated from Saint Joseph Notre Dame High School in Alameda

Christopher was recognized by the National Achievement Scholarship Program, which honors academically talented American high school students.

 in addition, Christopher was a member of the California Honor Student Federation.  Christopher took a full load of challenging classes his senior year, including
 AP Physics, AP Calculus and AP Government

 He also participated on an officer level in student government for four years.  Christopher was an All League baseball player on the varsity baseball team at SJND.  He batted over .400 and led the Bay Shore League RBI’s. He is also a dedicated reader, Christopher reads on average, two books each week unrelated to schoolwork.  Christopher is a Junior Deacon at Allen Temple Baptist Church, and is a Master of ceremonies on the ATB Broadcast team.

Congratulations are also in order for Chris's parents Chester and Lolita who have done a phenomenal job preparing him for this next exciting stage of his life. The Livingstons could write a book on parenting strong black boys. We look forward to many updates on Chris's accomplishments at Howard.  The only question is how long before he moves into the White House after earning that political science degree. 
You can learn more about Chris's schools by visiting their websites at these links: St. Joseph's or Howard University    It's a great combination of campuses if you love Blue and Orange!
