Several Greer High School art students won awards at the PTSA Reflections contest at the state level.

Michaelyn Russell, Art Club president, won Outstanding Interpretation of Theme for South Carolina and her drawing,
"Where the Magic Begins," will compete in the national PTSA reflections contest in May.

"I created this piece because I wanted to illustrate where my love for creating artwork began," Russell said. "As a child, I loved to color with crayons which led me to explore different types of mediums. I wanted to make something simple like a pile of crayons look extraordinary and beautiful as they were to me when I was a child."

Emmanuel Martinez received an Award of Merit for "I See Greer High," and Francisco Galvari Ruiz received an Award of Merit for "Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder." ??
