Class of 2017: LHS senior artists craft their way down to 11 days

With only 11 days left until seniors bid a goodbye from the school year, the art students prepare for their bright future ahead, continuing their education and creativity.

Some seniors who took part in the art department include Valerie Coblentz, Elise Fenstermacher, Megan Wilhelm, and Melissa Darling (left to right). They all have shown outstanding works of art throughout their years, and some will be continuing their path in the arts.

Elise Fenstermacher will be attending Virginia Commonwealth University in the fall and plans to study commercial art or audio visual communications. Going out of state all the way to Virginia, she said that she will greatly miss the drama department.

Meghan Wilhelm who will be extending her education arts is excited to be joining Brigham Young University in Idaho. Wilhelm, someone who has spent many hours in the art classrooms as the co-president of the National Art Honor Society, she said, “The art teachers here are the best and I will miss them.” Her years at BYU will be focused on photography.

Valerie Coblentz is planning on going to Salisbury University majoring in social work. As she moves on to her college life, she said that she will definitely miss her friends and the LHS community.

Melissa Darling, who is an active member of the National Art Honor Society, will be attending FCC, majoring in general. At FCC she will be learning how to communicate effectively and how to pull together knowledge from many courses, preparing her to be successful in almost any job.

To all the seniors, enjoy your last few days of high school and we wish the best for your college years ahead!
