Artists excel in Merrick


During their May meeting, the Merrick Board of Education and administration honored the district’s nine students who were selected for this year’s Nassau County All-County Art Exhibit held at Farmingdale State College in March.

All-County artists were nominated by their respective art teachers, who, along with their principal, awarded them certificates of recognition for demonstrating exemplary creativity in their artwork.

This year, more than 400 art educators from more than 200 schools in 50 Nassau County school districts submitted student artwork for this prestigious exhibit. Congratulations to the students and their teachers.
