Agromeck Co-Photo Editor, Ryan Parry said:

This week’s Photo of the Week is by Technician Photo Editor Caide Wooten. Caide covered the Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemoration in Talley Student Union’s new State Ballroom and took full advantage of the visual elements available in the room. For a speaker shot, this photo stands out from the rest because of the speaker addressing the crowd with both her words and her hands. The NC State sign in the background provides a strong visual background that fills the dead space in the photo. Caide’s shot stands out from the rest of the photos by offering a straight on view of the speaker.
