Dr. Wetherell was president emeritus of Florida State University in Tallahassee and a former House Speaker in Florida’s House of Representatives. He lost his 16-year battle with cancer on December 16, 2018.

This past February, I had the pleasure of creating environmental portraits of Dr. Thomas Kent “T.K.” and Virginia “Ginger” Wetherell on their farm in Lamont, Florida. T.K. was president emeritus of Florida State University (and an alumnus), former president of Tallahassee Community College, and a former House Speaker in Florida’s House of Representatives. Ginger is a former state legislator and lobbyist. 

I photographed the Wetherells alongside the winding, white fence in front of their home near Tallahassee, Florida. They were flanked by beautiful, Spanish moss-draped live oak trees. T.K. and Ginger were very kind during our photography session together and I enjoyed meeting them.

Sadly, as reported by the Tallahassee Democrat, on December 16, 2018, T.K. lost his 16-year battle with cancer. Rest in peace, Dr. Wetherell.
