Cadet Pearl Wang, a 10th grade student at Clements High School, has been recognized for her entry in the 2013 Patriotic Art Contest, sponsored by the Ladies Auxiliary VFW of Texas. Her entry was judged and selected as a First Place Winner at the local level by members of the Ladies Auxiliary 4010 VFW of Stafford, Texas.
From there her work was sent on to the state competition where she received a 2nd Place in statewide judging. Mrs. Mortimer, President of the VFW Chapter in Stafford, was thrilled that an area student would have her artwork receive such recognition.
The purpose of the competition is to have students depict their understanding of patriotism through their own creative illustrations.
Pearl’s work was the result of her illustrative efforts in her Saturday afternoon art class. She has been a student in the MJAC Art Program at the First Colony Association Facility for five years, under the instruction of Mr. John Rodak.
Her entry will be returned in late June, 2013, and will be on display at the Wells Fargo Branch Bank (Austin Parkway and Highway 6) in August, 2013, along with entries from two other MJAC students, Karen Diao and Sophia Huang (also students at Clements High School).
