Ms. Carter's art students were fortunate to be selected to create works of art for the 25th Anniversary Gala of South Carolina Association for Community Economic Developments annual book cover. The works of art were submitted and voted on to receive the honor. Malaysia Legare was recognized as the first place winner!!! She received $500 dollars and her amazing piece was published on the cover. Esperanza Rosendo was voted 2nd place and Amani Williams received 3rd place. 
 
The Gala was an extravagant formal event that included a wonderful dinner with the students' art work displayed, the honoring of Ms. Carter's work, and a presentation to Malaysia, Esperanza, and Amani. The night brought Ms. Carter to tears on several occasions. 
 
Congratulations Ms. Carter on the wonderful work you are doing with our students.
