Drawing Dad

June 16, 2006|by KRISTIN WILSON

When Katie Moore is asked what makes her dad special, she has a quick answer:

"He's very understanding and he also is fabulous at what he does."

Katie's dad, Terry Moore, is a music teacher in Frederick County, Md. Katie, 15, of Smithsburg, is glad that she and her father share an interest in music.

Enjoying music and performance together was the inspiration for Katie's entry in The Herald-Mail's Father's Day drawing contest.

Katie sketched a portrait of herself and her dad, based on a recent picture taken of the two before they attended a performance of "The Music Man" at the Riverside Center Dinner Theater in Fredericksburg, Va.

Katie was the winner of the drawing contest and will receive a $50 prize. She's not quite sure what she'll do with her winnings, but sees the win as an indirect gift to her father. "The way I look at it is it's $50 less my dad has to spend on me," she says. "But I could also invest in something for my dad for Father's Day."
