HAVE INFO TO SHARE? IF YOU HAVE ANY ART
Every year students create artwork for inclusion in Anderson Center’s annual Graduation Booklet. In past years students created drawings with graduation themes (i.e. caps, graduates, school, diplomas, etc.), but for this year’s booklet artwork was selected from all the student artwork completed over the year.
