Two WJMS students were honored at GSU during "Southern's Art Extravaganza". Tricia's artwork called, "Nature, with Haiku" is a non-objective style painting with a Haiku poem. Andreas' artwork called, "Death in a Web" is in the style of Australia's Aboriginal paintings. Their artwork will be on display in the GSU College of Education building for the next year. Thirty students from surrounding counties including Bulloch had their art chosen for the event. Many dignitaries along with Senator Hill were on hand to present them with their certificates.
