Earlier this year GPPA lost a long time member, friend to all who met her and integral part of the association. Katie was the Print Comp Chair for many years. She was the wife and right hand to our past president and executive director Kevin. She was not officially on the board but was the glue which helped hold so many little pieces of Photoworks and Exposed together. Her passing has created ripples which have effected so many parts and people of GPPA.
To honor her memory we have renamed the "Peoples Choice Award" to the "Katie Jiminez Award" which is presented at the annual awards banquet during Exposed.
In addition the Al Audleman & Katie Jiminez Memorial Scholarship fund https://www.gofundme.com/al-audleman-memorial-scholarship was created to sponsor aspiring photographers to fulfill the completion of their CPP through Master of Photography education.
Here is the link to Katie's official obituary and guest book
