Emerald Cove Artists Win Award At WEF

Emerald Cove Middle School is home to a dozen artists who won “Best Representation of the Winter Equestrian Festival” at the Wellington horse show on Saturday, Feb. 3. This is their fourth-consecutive win. Art teacher Kimberley Kovacs is proud of her students’ winning design, which was inspired by a quote from Black Beauty author Anna Sewel: “Now I say that with cruelty and oppression, it is everybody’s business to interfere when they see it.” They selected this quote to represent this year’s theme: “What it means to be a star.” A star exhibits kindness and compassion for others when it might be easier to turn a blind eye.
