West Seattle schools: WSHS student accomplishments

Michelle Sloan at West Seattle High School shares news of several students’ accomplishments, starting with the above photo: It’s by Sage Taber, who won an award for it in the district’s annual art competition. It’s on display – as are other student works – at the Seattle Art Museum through June 5th … 20 creations by WSHS students are part of the ArtsWest Student Art Show that opened yesterday; tomorrow night, meet the young artists at a reception and awards ceremony, 6-7:30 pm. The show continues through Saturday … Student artist Jimmy Le will have work published in a student art book as the result of being selected in the Celebratingart.com competition … And last but not least, Michelle reports:

West Seattle High School Marketing students recently competed against each other in a Micro Loan competition. Student Marketing teams used the Kiva.org website to find small business entrepreneurs throughout the world who are in need of small loans to build their businesses. Students presented their entrepreneurs’ business to a panel of judges from the marketing/business industry. Holland America Cruise Line and West Seattle resident Jon Dawson and Marketing Judge Christa Peck contributed over $500 to fund the Micro Loans. After the loans are paid back (most within a year), West Seattle High School students will be able to loan the money out again to other small businesses throughout the world in need that cannot get loans through large banks.

Congratulations to all!

    This is a great show and includes not only artwork from the students at WSHS but also Chief Sealth, Denny, and Madison. Although Center School isn’t in West Seattle, several Center students who live in West Seattle are also represented in the show. As a matter of fact, 30% of the art is from West Seattle students. Pretty impressive!

    Congratulations to all the students from our neighborhood that represent the talent in West Seattle. I had the privilege of seeing Ms. Taber’s work in the Fall Art Expo at WSHS and to speak with her. I was amazed at how she put her “show” together and the age of the young lady in the photo. It was a wonderful way to get meet this young student and see all the students at the expo. Way to go Sage!
