Zheng’s Holiday Gem

High school senior Lillian Zheng was selected as the winner of the 2016 district Holiday Card Design Contest and presented with a plaque at the Board of Education’s December meeting.

            The district annually selects one winner from the various student entries submitted by art teachers across the district. The contest rotates between the three teaching levels — elementary, middle and high school — and thus promotes the work of students of various ages. Zheng’s design was selected as the finalist from a pool of works submitted by high school art students, and it was used as the district’s holiday card this year as a result.

            Zheng is a student of art teacher Beth Atkinson. Along with the Board of Education, Atkinson, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Carl Bonuso and Supervisor of Fine Arts Philip Grusenmeyer were all in attendance to congratulate Zheng and her parents at the commemorative plaque ceremony.
