Hannah Lind and Zoe Sherman were honored this week at the Spokane Community Observance of the Holocaust for the amazing art pieces they created. Zoe received honorable mention for her piece titled One Woman’s Story, and Hannah Lind tied for 2nd place with her piece titled The Weight of What We Watched. There were only six students recognized with awards across our greater Spokane community, and two were our very own Ridgeline students! If you’d like to see this incredible artwork up close, Hannah and Zoe’s pieces will be on display at the down town Spokane library during the month of May. We are so proud of these ladies for creating such moving art pieces for such an important cause!
