GCPS Student Artists Receive State Honor for Safe Transportation Posters

Please join me in recognizing some exemplary members of our school community. GCPS art teachers, Ms. Kim Bachman and Mr. Tom Case, encouraged their students to participate in the Virginia Association for Pupil Transportation’s poster contest. For the second consecutive year, Goochland High School students received state recognition for their exemplary submissions.

Student awards are as follows:

  • 1st place Carson Sylvester, awarded a $100.00 check and Blue Ribbon
  • 2nd place Aniya Hope, awarded a $75.00 check and Red Ribbon
  • 3rd place Justin Alley, awarded a $50.00 check and White Ribbon

The theme for the 2013 contest was “At my Stop – You Stop!” The Virginia state-wide poster contest promotes school bus safety through student artistic expression.┬áThese students’ posters will be published in the 2013-2014 VA State Pupil Transportation calendar. Look for their work to be showcased on our website and during a forthcoming school board meeting.

We hope even more GCPS students will consider submitting their work for consideration this year. The 2014 theme will be “Be Smart – Be Seen, I wait in a safe place!”
