Glenelg students advance in national PTA’s Reflections art contest

Reflections is a nationwide Parent Teacher Association program to recognize students who are involved in the arts. For the 2019 to 2020 school year, students expressed the theme of “Look Within” using the different categories of film, dance, musical composition, photography, visual arts and literature.

County entries have been judged, and several entries from Glenelg will move on to state level judging. Chloe Dressel, Pauline Shin and Molly Nichols each had an entry in the photography category, which will now be judged against other creations from around the state. Congratulations to all three young women.
