I am a 2017 graduate of BHS and now a fourth-year student at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, studying Visual Arts, Design. I would not be where I am today without the “enrichment” funding provided by past BISD levies. Having art specialists in elementary school and advanced art classes in high school allowed me to find my passion and hone my skills and get into art school. I now plan to pursue a career in the arts.
Funding for “enrichment” activities and classes allows students like me to excel in classes beyond English, math, and science, and pursue a career in the arts. As we struggle with COVID, where would we be without books, video, poetry, movies, music, and other products of students of the arts. When COVID is under control, we will all flock to movies, the theater, dance, concerts, and museums. The arts are essential.
I still vote on Bainbridge, and I plan to vote to support these levies. Please join me in voting to provide future pathways for kids.
