MHS students create portraits of children
Memory Project pictures accompany supplies to Peru
For the fourth year, art students at Monett High School participated in the Memory Project.
Teacher Lynn Morin received 15 photo portraits of Peruvian children in December, and had 15 students volunteer to create portraits.
"We provided $15 per child for necessities like toothpaste, soap, comb, pencil and paper, etc.," Morin said. "The artwork is for the children to keep and make a memory that they are loved."
Participating Monett students were seniors Magali Sandoval, Yasmin Serrano, Ashley Batson and Taya Ellis;
juniors Amy Tsai, Aveline McIntire and Maggie Sisney; sophomores Katie Smith, Lorna Conway, Diego Gomez, Celia Herrera-Ramos and Chloe Bartz; and freshman Santanna Rodriguez.
