Passing the… Birthday Candle (Torch)
For the past year and a half, Grady H.’s drawing has graced the front of the birthday card which is given to every student on their birthday. It’s time for an updated look and Peter F. has stepped up with his artistic flare and provided us with a new drawing that will be integrated into the new birthday cards in the coming months. Thank you to Grady for the use of your image to this point and thanks to Peter for your willingness to share your talents with us.
