2 Winners of Governor’s Art Contest
On Wednesday, Anna Jarvis Elementary School (AJES) students Lilian Cron and Bailey Fernatt along with their families and art teacher Beth Roselius, were invited to meet Governor Jim Justice and receive awards for winning the Governor’s Art Contest, “An Invitation to Almost Heaven.” Students were asked to create a one-of-a-kind postcard design that featured a seasonal scene in West Virginia. This is the second year that Governor Justice and the West Virginia Department of Arts, Culture, and History have organized this state-wide competition for students in grades K-12. There were over 400 entries with 9 winners in 3 categories: elementary, middle school, and high school. Lilian Cron, a 1st grader at Anna Jarvis painted a picture of Autumn in Blackwater Canyon and won 1st place in the elementary category. Bailey Fernatt, a 4th grade student at AJES, painted Cathedral Falls in the Summer, and won 3rd place. Lilian and Bailey’s artwork will be made into postcards for the West Virginia Tourism Office to personally invite travelers to Almost Heaven West Virginia. Their artwork, along with 23 other AJES entries, is on display in the State Capitol until September. AJES art teacher, Beth Roselius is a summa cum laude graduate of West Virginia University’s Fine Arts Program. Principal Heather Sinclair, Assistant Principal Shelly Stead, and the faculty at Anna Jarvis Elementary School are strong supporters of the arts, and the students’ art is displayed throughout the school on a regular basis
