In this photo, onlookers watch from the pylons on Virginia Tech's campus as fireworks of red, white, and blue go off overhead.

Nineteen-year-old Loren Skinker of Allentown, Pennsylvania is currently a multimedia journalism major and a professional and technical writing minor at Virginia Tech. Though he says he isn’t really involved in the Blacksburg community, he participated in Tech’s Big Event, a day of student-led community service in the New River Valley. Skinker says he has always been passionate about photography, so he decided to join the Collegiate Times as a photographer when he came to Tech. “Now, I have the opportunities to take photos like this,” he said.
