Fotolanthropy, the film and photography nonprofit started by a Lake Highlands High grad, has named a new president.

On Feb. 15, the company announced the appointment of David White, an experienced filmmaker of more than 12 years. His new title follows the premiere of the acclaimed Fotolanthropy produced documentary 7 Yards: The Chris Norton Story.

Katie Norris, 2003 LHHS grad, founder and CEO of Fotolanthropy filmed the documentary. It details the story of a man, Chris Norton, who was injured and paralyzed in a 2010 college football game. The film was picked up by Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV and Netflix in 2021.

White served as cinematographer for the documentary and also captured footage of Norton’s walk down the aisle with his wife at their wedding.

“The opportunity to make films that capture such remarkable people and that bring hope to the viewer is a dream come true,” White told Fotolanthropy. “I’m thrilled to be a part of the team and already working on what’s next for Fotolanthropy.”
