The students, who were recently honored at a reception held at the site on May 15, had a chance to see their work on display, win some raffle prizes and enjoy delicious refreshments provided by several local businesses. Twelfth grader Kaliyah Jones [pictured above left] was very pleased, saying “This is cool, that someone would actually consider our work. Who would think a group of high school students would be acknowledged like this? It really gives the waiting areas character and makes it feel real homey.” Ninth grader Xuan Huynh [pictured above right], one of three sisters who’ve attended Uplift since 6th grade, agreed, commenting, “It was an honor to have my worked picked out of all the classes. There was some beautiful artwork, and I feel honored to know I had a contribution.”
Ms. Mulkoff was equally enthusiastic, observing, "This is a great way for the students to see that the community supports and appreciates their art. I could tell the students felt pride seeing their work displayed in a public place."
