HONORING YOUNG ARTISTS FROM WHITKO HIGH SCHOOL
HON. JIM BANKS
in the house of representatives
Tuesday, January 16, 2018
Mr. BANKS of Indiana. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize seven
exceptional students from Whitko High School in South Whitley, Indiana.
In September 2017, Whitko High School students participated in the 48th
World School Children's Art Exhibition in Taipei, Taiwan. The
exhibition is designed to promote artistic exploration and highlight
the artistic achievements of students from 42 nations.
I would like to congratulate Whitko High School students Brielle
Harrison, Megan Licata, Trysten Tucker, Chase Meade, Derek Stouder, and
Katarina Rojas on being selected to participate in this prestigious
contest. I also would like to congratulate Julia Seifert, whose
painting “Indian Lore” received a bronze prize.
On behalf of northeast Indiana, I would like to congratulate these
young artists on their accomplishments. I know that each of these
students has a very bright future.
