Locals can find placemats designed by Kenney Middle School students at Kim’s Village Café in Hannibal.
Art teacher Hollie House initiated a contest for the design of the placemats.
The project was a part of the school’s strategic plan action to advertise and promote the district’s mission, vision, parameters and beliefs.
The artistic abilities of the middle schoolers were so outstanding that House decided to select many students’ work and created a collage for the design.
The placemats were printed on 11 by 17 inch purple paper and distributed to Kim’s Village Café as well as other local businesses.
The talents of Zach Gombas, Allyson Jones, Ashlee Norris and Rebecca Marsh were some of the winners that portrayed the school spirit of the Hannibal Central School District.
The project allowed for artistic expression and real-life experience while promoting community collaboration and Hannibal pride.
To celebrate, House, Assistant Principal Chris Tynan and Tammy Farrell (director of curriculum – instruction and special programs) and the students were treated to lunch by Kim of Kim’s Village Café where the students got to see their works.
