Niki Gibson and Abigail Cano, both age 10, point to their artwork featured in the Roswell Independent School District’s board room. Gibson is a student at Berrendo Elementary School and Cano attends East Grand Plains Elementary School. Forty-five students were recognized at the school board meeting on Tuesday. “I think it is just a testament to the need for arts in education and integrating those, helping our kids make those connections with what they are learning and being able to express that so beautifully and so creatively through their artwork,” Superintendent Dr. Ann McIlroy said. Abbie Smith, Arts Connect principal, said it is “plain to see the amazing talent of students” and the staff that guides it. Smith and the staff gave certificates and ribbons to the students after the recognition. (Alison Penn Photo)
