The Elkton High School NAHS Chapter 2717 has had a busy year. Members have inspired school spirit with face painting at football games and spirit week. We are creating a cultural mural for the school entrance. We have received $1000 in grants and gone out into the community asking members what they love, where they live, and what makes Elkton memorable to them and their culture. We have had experienced muralists attend club meetings in order to give advice and provide feedback. We are currently in the sketching phase of our plan. In other news, multiple NAHS members have won student of the month this year which all leads up to an artist of the year recognized at Senior Awards night or the NAHS Induction. In November, we completed holiday themed window paintings at the local Chic-fil-a and tied with another school for 1st place. We received $350 in prize money which will pay for our honor cords and tassels. We are excited for what’s to come and plan on continuously providing inspiration and culture for our community. March is Youth Art Month, so we are making announcements in the mornings all throughout the month as submitted by NAHS members. Announcements consist of facts and trivia in an effort to raise awareness and appreciation for the importance of the arts. We are continuously thinking of ways to bring art to our school and community in order to celebrate diversity and encourage togetherness. In June, we will have our induction and a student gallery exhibit at the Cecil County Arts Council This will be exciting because we recognize graduating seniors with their honor cords, welcome new members, while enjoying and sharing local art.
