Jones Soda to use Caledonia teen’s photo
It’s been a good couple of weeks for 17-year old Katherine Feathers of Caledonia.
Just recently she was notified by Jones Soda company that the photograph she submitted to them for a possible soda bottle label has been approved.
Her photo of a little frog perched on the family’s pool deck will be on Jones’ strawberry-lime soda for distribution in the Canadian province of Québec.
Feathers recalls the day she discovered the frog.
“I was at home with my mom out on the pool deck and though it was cute so I took a picture,” she said.
She is a senior and a photography student at Caledonia-Mumford High School. She used a Canon Rebel T3 digital SLR camera to take the photograph.
She loves Jones Soda, crème soda is her favorite flavor, but she says, she’s just happy that her photo will be used as a label on the soda even if it isn’t on her favorite flavor and won’t be on store shelves anywhere in the Rochester area or U.S.
The company sent Feathers six labels of her photograph. Only about one percent of the photographs submitted to the company ever make it to a soda bottle, according to the company’s website, www.jonessoda.com.
Feathers is also celebrating her acceptance into the Rotary Youth Exchange Program for next year.
She was fortunate to be accepted for a one-year stay in the country of her choice, Germany, and will leave following her high school graduation this June. Katherine is the daughter of Tim and Laura Feathers of Caledonia.
