Batavia Student Represents RMS and IL in National Exhibit
Kira Marlow, a curent BHS freshman, received national recognition this summer in Washington, D.C. during an exhibit featuring students from across the US. Two students from each state were selected, plus 2 from DC, to have their artwork on display at the Marin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library in downtown DC. Kira was 1 of 10 (out of the 52) students chosen to receive an all expense paid trip for herself and her mother out to DC to be honored at the reception. Her works was also chosen to become a permanent display piece, and is featured on the exhibit's flyers, programs, and postcards!
*(Please see article below for more details and quotes from Kira and her parents)*
As her teacher, I can't express how proud I am of her for taking the chance of submitting her work, nor how privlaged I feel to have had the opportunity to have her as my student. So many students are bursting with artistic potential, skill, and talent, and Kira is an example and inspiration to them to take risks and push themselves. While we proudly display all of our students' artwork here at Rotolo, a student reaching such achievements gives a sense of pride and confidence which they can carry with them for years to come.
