Liana James, a junior in the Visual Arts Department at Barbara Ingram School for the Arts, was recently presented with a certificate of appreciation and a Howard’s Art Supplies and Frames gift certificate for her creation of the logo to be used by Washington County Alliance of Black School Educators.

Alliance President Brenda J. Thiam and Secretary Lee Brooks made the presentation on behalf of the organization.

The alliance is a nonprofit organization in partnership with Washington County Public Schools. Its mission is to promote, encourage and foster academic excellence in all students, with a particular interest in those students who are of African descent; to provide a forum for educators, parents and community leaders to engage in conversations that will contribute to the academic advancement of all students; and to assist parents with strategies and best practices that will contribute to the learning of their students.

The logo, as explained by Liana, uses stars to represent the knowledge that adults must help children reach for and pass down to the next generation.

Those interested in joining the alliance are invited to attend the Jan. 19 meeting from 4 to 5 p.m. in the media center at Salem Avenue Elementary School.
