Congratulations to Glenelg High School students Allison Abruscato and Morgan Ruddo for their winning entries in the Parent Teacher Association Reflections program. Allison’s photograph won first place at the county level and will move on to be judged against other entries from around the state. Morgan’s photograph won second place at the county level and will also be judged at the state level.

The National Reflections program is designed to encourage students to express themselves through art. Students were asked to create a work of art reflecting this year’s theme of “Heroes Around Me” in one of six categories: dance choreography, film production, literature, musical composition, photography and visual arts. The entries were judged against others from Howard County schools and the best were sent to the state level.

Two Folly Quarter Middle School students have also won awards at the county level in the Reflections program and will now be competing at the state level. Congratulations to Eleanor Spencer for her third place in dance choreography and Sebastien Spencer for placing second in the literature category.
