Student Art Work Recognitions at BOE Meeting

Last Updated on Oct 26, 2016 at 8:37am | Public Information Office

The Board of Education recognized student artists at its recent Board Meeting on October 11, 2016. The Fine Arts Committee unanimously selected student artwork to be purchased by Garrett County Public Schools and to be displayed in the central office. Each member of the Fine Arts Committee voted on his/her favorite selection from the elementary, middle, and high school grade levels. The committee had a tie in the selection of both elementary and middle school students’ artwork; therefore, the committee decided to purchase both students’ artwork at both levels.
