SkillsUSA state gold-medalist Mike Noga shares his journey in an exclusing interview.

FHS senior Mike Noga took the gold medal in photography at the SkillsUSA State Championships in San Diego. It took hard work and dedication to get to where he is today.

“Mike winning the Gold Medal is like an athlete in high school winning the state championship in his sport. Most won’t truly realize the significance of this nor what it actually took to earn it,” said Steve Dommer, the photography advisor at FHS.

“I was first introduced freshman year when my brother, Ruvim Noga, started photography. He introduced me to photography and this class [photography],”said Noga.

“I started sophomore year. He [Ruvim] got me introduced and I began to like it…. At first it was just whatever, I just took pictures like everyone else did. I just took pictures for the grade and eventually it got interesting and I started to take pictures because it was fun and not just for the grade,” explained Noga.
