My Artist

Taryn has had quite a wealth of attention on her art this spring. She won a contest through the Yellowhawk Health Clinic at the tribe. Her art was about making good choices and not using drugs and alcohol.

Her next winning entry was her bookmark for the Pendleton Public Library. Her bookmark will be one of 7 that will be available for anyone to pick up when they check out books this year.
Her 'largest' win was her Right to Life entry at our church. Her picture won her age category and was selected to be made into a billboard. She has wanted to win this contest for three years. She has known many of the past winners, and this year it is her name on the billboard. We hope she will always be able to stand up for her faith and for what she believes, even if it isn't widely accepted by her peers or society.

I am so proud of Taryn. I feel so fortunate that I got to be her third grade teacher. There is definitely something extra special about that girl.
