kristinw@herald-mail.com Katlin Rogerson talks about drawing as she might talk about a lifelong friend - her art is an extension of herself, something that has grown with her. Picking up a pencil and sketching comes naturally to her and is one of Katlin's favorite pastimes. She spent her high school years taking art classes and now, as a freshmen at Hagerstown Community College, she continues to draw and sketch whenever inspiration strikes her. With all of that practice, Katlin earned The Herald-Mail's student art contest best of show award for her untitled pencil and colored pencil drawing of a wavy-haired woman with her hands to her face.

HAGERSTOWN - The items are ones that students see and use every day and, in many cases, take for granted.

"You're not going to throw that away are you?" My 8-year-old son was gazing intently at the cardboard tissue box cube I had in my hand. "Well, yes. It's empty, so I'm putting it in the trash can. " His shoulders sagged in disappointment. "But Mom, I could make something from that. " Not wanting to stifle his creativity, I handed it over. And so it goes in our household.
