HUGHESVILLE The East Lycoming School District is proud to announce that Cassandra Walters and Hannah Miller have been honored by being named “WVIA Artists of the Week”.

Walters has been named the WVIA Performing Artist of the Week and Miller has been named the WVIA Visual Artist of the Week for the week of Sunday, June 25 through Saturday, July 1.

This campaign is designed to call attention to high school students who have excelled in the study of the arts. The partnering high school selects two students, one visual artist and one performing artist, who are then interviewed at the WVIA Public Media studios for a digital video vignette. The “Artist of the Week” vignette showcases the student, high school, and school district and salutes them for their artistic achievement. The students will be featured across all WVIA television, radio and digital platforms for one week and the accompanying vignette will be available to watch on wvia.org and pbs.org for one year. Selected artists will then be in the running to compete for “WVIA Artist of the Year”, which is announced in May.

The East Lycoming School District is committed to utilizing universal resources to provide a safe, professional learning environment, which is responsive to the individual needs and abilities of children, by implementing a challenging, integrated curriculum that will encourage each student to become a contributing citizen and life-long learner in a global community.

WVIA Public Media is a catalyst, convener and educator, using media, partnerships, powerful ideas and programs to improve lives and advance the best attributes of an enlightened society.
