Quad City Herald FAMILY & FRIENDS F)ateros Higtk School art student first place award in show i Scott Mitchell Scott Mitchell, a Pateros High School sophomore, received a first place award for his entry in the drawing category at the 19th An- nual Regional High School Art Show. Mitchell's piece, a pen and ink titled Op Art, was selected by the judges during the recent com- petition held at North Central Washington Museum. Ten entries were received from students of Chris Dixon, Pateros High School art instructor. Although the five Best of Show award winning pieces were with- drawn from the exhibit to be en- tered ia the State competition, the balance of show consisting of a total of 230 pieces created by 198 North Central Washington students will be on display in the Museum galleries through April 12. The 1998 exhibit showcasing the work of young artists from seventeen area high schools is the largest high school art show to date. According to Terri White, exhibit curator, the show has been expanded from the Museum's 600 square foot Skybridge Gallery (show- ing works entered for display only), to include the 3,600 square foot Main Museum Gallery. The ex- pansion of the High School Art Show can be attributed to the "quality of the artwork, the enthusiasm of the students and teachers and the interest on the part of museum visitors," said White. Open to High School art stu- dents from Chelan, Douglas, Grant, and Okanogan counties, the show gives students the option of enter- ing their work for display or for competition. This year for the first time pieces entered for competi- tion are displayed in the Main Museum Gallery. In addition to the Best of Show awards, first second, and third place awards were presented in each of five categories (painting, draw- ing, sculpture, mixed media, and special education.) A panel of judges selected the prize-winning entries. Judges included Creola Jack, Wenatchee textile artist and member of the NCW Quilt Guild; Hank Langeman, retired educator and sculptor; and Gall Boprey, textile artist who holds a degree in art education from CWU. Entries receiving Best in Show awards included: Ecnalab, a cast bronze by Owen Martin, a sopho- more at Okanogan High School - Dan Brown, instructor; Frustration, a handmade paper collage by Ande Harwood, senior at Quincy High School - Dana Dal Porto, instruc- tor; Two Pulling Forces, a cut pa- per design by Lori Marr, a junior at Ephrata High School - Laurie Parker, instructor: and Untitled, a portrait in oils by Andrea Thomas, a senior at Liberty Bell High School - Sean McCabe, instructor. In addition to the Pateros en- tries, students from the following communities participated in the 19th Annual Regional High School Art Show: Bridgeport; Leavenworth's Cascade High School; Cashmere; East Wenatchee's Eastmont High School and Eastmont Jr. High School; Entiat; Ephrata; Grand Coulee's Lake Roosevelt High School; Methow Valley's Liberty Bell High School; Manson; Moses Lake; Okanogan; Omak; Quincy; Soap Lake; and Wenatchee.

Arizona visit Amber Westerdahl of Brewster returned home March 26 from a week's visit in Arizona and Ne- vada. She spent four days in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, with her grandparents Roy and Lois Westerdahl. Sightseeing included a trip on the lake with a stop to check out a gambling casino. The last few days of the trip were spent in Las Vegas visiting with best friend Tiffany Stratton. The gals kept busy seeing the sights of the area and city with some time out to shop at the malls in Ceasar's Place and the Mirage - there was "no time for gambling". "The trip was fun and special," said Amber, "it was a 21st birthday gift from my grandparents."

Ouad Ci Herald March 5 1998 Page 3 Nelly An00valo on state school superintendent advisory board Nelly Arevalo is the newest member of s prestigious state advisory commission. Last year Brewster High School senior Nelly Arevalo was appointed to a prestigious commission, a group that advises the Superintendent of Public Instruction on issues and concerns that affect migrant workers. It is an important commission, with many members who are important people in their communities. Nelly's teacher Lupe Ledesma talked about that; she said Arevalo would be meeting people who were leaders in their communities. That made Nelly Arevalo a little nervous. (In fact, she said she was so nervous she forgot her camera.) She knew it was an important commission because of its statewide membership, she said, but she had not realized how important it was. "I was kind of scared" on the trip down to Yakima for her first meeting, not knowing how those important people, community leaders, would react to a Brewster High School student. But at the meeting Arevalo discovered that they were not all that different from herself. They were looking for ways to improve educational opportuni- ties for children from migrant families, and they wanted the best for those children. "They're just like me. They just--have more power, I guess." Arevalo is one of two students on the commission; she is serving a two year term. "For me, this year is going to be, like, training," she said. As a new member she could participate in the discussions but not vote on the resolutions. The first few meetings she plans to spend most of her time listening and learning, "just to see how things run," she said. It was a day-long meeting with a very busy agenda. "We have so many issues to talk about," Cub Scouts meeting Tuesday Cub Scout Pack 33 will meet Tues- day, March 10, at 7 p.m. in the American Legion Hall in Brewster. Pack members are reminded to bring their own toppings for ice cream sundaes. Awards to be given to members will be included on the agenda.

The commission members talked about health care, health insurance and its affect on edu- cation. They talked about Mexican and Central American workers who are in the U.S. illegally, and its effect on the children. They discussed dropout rates among teenagers from migrant families, and getting those teenagers to return to school. The new state educa- tion assessment tests also were discussed; they are given in English only and will not be an accurate measure of children who are new to the state and do not speak English, Arevalo said. These are basic issues for parents, which directly affect their children's education. Parents as well as students and education professionals have representa- tion on the commission. Arevalo said those parents were the people she admired most, because they have fulltime jobs and their free time is limited. Weekends are precious to them, yet they were "willing to leave their kids for a day and go to this big meeting." One of those parents expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to talk about the needs of his children, and other children from migrant families. He had tears in his eyes and he wasn't alone; "it was so emotional to everybody." Arevalo said one of her goals is to work with migrant parents and help them get more involved in their children's education. Education is different and more effective for children whose parents are involved, she said. But many times parents of mi- grant students know little English, and know little about Washington school systems. School systems give parents lots of information, lots of documents, but Arevalo said she did not know how much of that information the parents really understand. There are avenues for parent involvement; there are ways "for students to know that they can teach their parents to help them." Parents and students alike need to know that, she said. Arevalo has been selected to attend the national migrant advisory council, scheduled for late March in Louisville, Kentucky. Her fellow student mem- ber on the commission, a young man from Mt. Vernon, urged her to go and said it had been a good learning experience. Nelly Arevalo knows that is true; she attended an Hispanic youth leadership conference last year, and learned that she liked to speak in public. "When you go to new places, you learn new things about yourself," she said. She was nominated as a candidate for the state advisory commission while attending the conference. Her term began in January. She said she used to think she wanted to be a teacher, but now she isn't sure. There are so many things she has found she likes to do, she said. She does know she wants to pursue a career involving children, "just helping kids." )kanogan County Artists seek new members The Okanogan County Artists Association will host a special membership drive meeting Mon- day, March 16, at the Okanogan Grange building.
