Mandala Artist Recognized

Northeast Iowa Community College, Calmar--Rockefeller Alternative High School Program student, Elizabeth Cohenour, was the artist featured on the cover of the most recent edition of The Mandala. The Mandala is Iowa's art and literary magazine for alternative high school students. Having her art work featured on the cover is not the only thing should be proud of--she was recognized by others for her talent, too! The Fayette County Union featured a story about Liz (see below) which was noticed by Iowa State Representative, Roger Thomas. Rep. Thomas sent a personal note to Liz (see below) congratulating her for her artwork and her recognition in the newspaper.

Congratulations to Liz and Rockefeller Alternative H.S. Program for their recognition! Thanks for sharing your amazing talent, and for spreading such a positive message about alternative education in Iowa!
