Ring Lardner student wins first place in art competition

NILES — Ring Lardner student Cheyne Cheney was selected as the first-place winner in the Box Factory for the Arts art show, which took place Tuesday.

Cheney is a seventh-grader and she completed her first-place drawing in art club, which is taught by Ring Lardner art teacher Scott Morgan.

Cheney competed  against 19 other Berrien County school districts. In addition to the first-place title, she received $50 and her artwork was professionally framed.

She also won the 2018 Community Student Art Award. She will receive a scholarship of $50 valid to attend art classes throughout Berrien County and beyond.

Morgan recognized all his students who competed.

“I am proud of the other 29 student’s artwork that was selected,” Morgan said. “We have some very talented students. It is a great honor to have their artwork selected and put on display for all the community to see.”

Cheney’s art work will be displayed at the Box Factory through April 28. The Box Factory is located at 1101 Broad St., St. Joseph.
