A Cherokee County School District student has won a local art competition.
Etowah High School senior Marissa Migneco created the winning entry for the “Painting with a Purpose” mural design contest sponsored by the local nonprofit organization, Goshen Valley.
The contest, which was open to CCSD students, asked the young artists to create a design for a mural to be installed at its new Goshen Valley Family Resource Center in Canton.
Marissa was surprised with the news of her during her art class with a special presentation by Zach Blend, CEO of Goshen Valley, and leaders from CCSD’s Office of Curriculum & Instruction. Her art teacher is Joshua Saye.
She will have the opportunity to paint her mural design with her fellow high school visual arts students.
