Four students recognized for artwork that will be displayed in School Board office

BROOKSVILLE — For a couple of days, the Hernando County School Board office walls were blank and bleak. Last year's art had been taken down, and this year's student work had yet to be hung.

The situation was quickly remedied.

During programs May 8 and 9, students whose art was chosen to be displayed during the coming year were announced at the 16th annual Art Gallery Presentation Night. New this year was special recognition to four students chosen by superintendent Lori Romano for the Superintendent's Recognition Award.

Addressing all of the students, Romano said: "Your artwork is amazing, and you are truly gifted and talented."

The four students who received special recognition were third-grader Julianna Maquia, Suncoast Elementary School; seventh-grader Grace Meseke, Challenger K-8 School of Science and Mathematics; eighth-grader Kayla Rivera, Powell Middle School; and senior Savannah Alford, Weeki Wachee High School.

A list of all of the students will appear on a future Top of the Class page.
