WMC to honor high school students’ artwork with annual academic calendar
Thirteen local students will have their winning art displayed at WMC for a year

FRANKLIN, Tenn. — Williamson Medical Center has partnered with the Realtor® Good Works Foundation again this year to recognize and honor local high school art students through WMC’s annual academic calendar.

This year marks the 29th annual printing of the academic calendar, which is distributed free of charge to every school in Williamson County. This year’s calendar will return to its original format designed to hang on the wall and help busy families keep track of important school dates as well as leave space for family activities.

“Last year, we deviated from our traditional format to try to accommodate today’s more mobile society with a smaller, more portable calendar, but we heard from the community that they prefer the wall format, so we’ve returned to a larger size and are working on a beautiful new design that will not only be cleaner and easier to read, but will leave adequate space for families to write in their own important dates and activities,” said Stephanie Clark, director of marketing and business development at Williamson Medical Center.

The 2015-2016 calendar features 13 pieces of art created by students representing more than a dozen public and private high schools in Williamson County. Selected artwork will also be on display in the lobby of the Williamson Tower on the WMC campus beginning in August, where it will reside for one year.

This year’s winning high school student artists are: Kayla Williamson, Brentwood Academy; Danielle Caron, BGA; Megan Stanley and Lisa Qu, Brentwood; Rachel Schut, Centennial; Kendrick Catron, Fairview; Sarah Beth Bills, Franklin; Ethan Valk, Independence; Natalie Briscoe, Page; Morgan McClary, Renaissance; Andy Gordon and Kallen Fons, Ravenwood; and Riley Barrentine, Summit.

All finalists will receive a cash award from the REALTOR® Good Works Foundation. The winning artwork will also be on display at the Williamson County Association of Realtors’ annual Bling and Bowties gala to be held at Carnton Plantation on April 23.

For more information on how individuals and corporations can support Bling and Bowties: An Evening with the Arts, or REALTOR® Good Works Foundation please contact Robinson Regen, event coordinator at 615.604.5655 or info.blingandbowties@gmail.com.

Nearly 50,000 2015-16 academic calendars will be distributed throughout Williamson County in August where each child will bring one home.
