North Rowan High School junior, Aniya O’Neal gifted artwork to be displayed at the Community Care Clinic of Rowan County.
Executive Director Krista Woolly teamed up with North Rowan High School teachers, Sherry Mason Brown and Leigh Ann Alexander, to commission artwork for the clinic. Students went on a learning expedition to learn about the clinic’s mission and how to best capture its needs through artwork to support the work of the clinic, which includes providing medical, dental and pharmacy services to uninsured Rowan County residents.
The clinic’s Board of Directors awarded Aniya a certificate of appreciation at their August Board meeting for the donation of her artwork.
"This is a great example of how extraordinary education every day meets the needs of our community or local businesses,” said Superintendent Dr. Tony B. Watlington, Sr. “Rowan-Salisbury School System students have many skills and talents that can be utilized to support the needs of our community. It is ideal when business, community and schools come together, and it is a benefit to us all.”
