Elwood-John H. Glenn High School’s National Art Honor Society held its induction ceremony in the school cafeteria on April 19, recognizing the school’s hardworking and talented student-artists. After a welcome from NAHS adviser Amy Lindenbaum, Vice President Sabrina Siddiqui lit the ceremonial candles in the primary colors of red, yellow and blue, and President Maggie Murphy led the proud new inductees in their pledge.
“A significant part of what makes art so wonderful is being able to share our love for it with others and getting to connect to people through a common interest,” Murphy said. “I know for me, and I am sure for everyone else in the Art Honor Society, being part of a group of people who all similarly care about art and who all want to express that through murals around the school, has given me a sense of community that I feel so lucky to have experience. I know that I will look back fondly on all the memories and lessons from my experiences with art here, and I know all of the other students in the room will do the same.”
