Smith-Cotton High School art teacher Michael Shukers was notified recently that work by two of his students were selected to be used for the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s holiday cards.
“I was chosen to have students design the holiday cards this year by Robin Barbour, executive assistant, State Board of Education/Deputy Commissioner’s in Jefferson City. I was notified a few months ago to have students design cards for the competition.
“I offered the project as extra-curricular assignment, and several students accepted the challenge. I submitted artwork to Robin Barbour last week and the selections were made on Dec. 15,” commented Shukers.
