On Jan. 22, Jennie Moore Elementary in Mount Pleasant held the PTA Reflections.org Art Contest Awards Ceremony.
Karen Felder, Principal, and Susan Fitz, AP, proudly presided over the ceremony announcing the finalists. All the aspiring artists who submitted entries were celebrated for their original creations in six art categories. The promising prodigies shook hands with The PTA Reflections Chair, Dr. Elizabeth Dillon as they received their ribbons, awards certificates and special mementos. The event was a success, filled with parents, teachers, friends and art enthusiasts who attended the ceremony to encourage and cheer on the budding young artists. It was a great opportunity for the kids to combine fun and recognition in the ARTS.
