FLINT TWP. — Jamie Arnold, a Carman-Ainsworth Middle School sixth-grader, received special recognition at the school board meeting last week for her prize-winning art work.
Jamie was a fifth-grader last year at Dye Elementary School, when she participated in an art competition that was part of the after-school program.
“Picturing Success: The Transformative Power of Afterschool,” offered prizes from YouthQuest and the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation.
Jamie won an artistic award that came with a cash prize of $250 which was earmarked for buying more art supplies for the school in her name.
Accompanied by her mother and siblings, Jamie brought along her prize winning artwork to show the board. She told them the multicolored piece represented diversity and came from an idea gleaned from a project done in her regular school art class.
CA board president Patrice Hatcher, on behalf of the board, presented Jamie with a Certificate of Achievement.
