Norman Gottlieb Youth Art Show
Marshall Academy of the Arts was proud to have such amazing artists represent the school at the annual Norman Gottlieb Youth Art Show at the JCC on the evening of February 25th, 2016. The night was a wonderful showcase of the hopes, dreams, and desires that flow richly and effortlessly from the creative minds of the district's very talented middle school and high school student artists. 8th graders, Kalea and Andres, brought some serious talent and focus to the show with their impressive scratch board pieces. Andres continued Marshall's tradition of excellence and captured 2nd place for the middle school division. 7th graders, Jade and Angie, held their own with their equally stunning scratch board pieces. Angie was further honored by the voting committee and was the deserving recipient of a Board of Directors' Award. Marshall Academy of the Arts has gained the outstanding reputation as a middle school hub for creative thinking through the arts. One art patron so eloquently described Marshall's creative culture, "Marshall always represents with amazing pieces of art each and every year!" Kalea, Andres, Jade, and Angie, you make Marshall proud! Congratulations to all of our student artists!

Omar Awaida Character Award
The award was created in remembrance of Omar because of the indelible effects of his character that impacted others. The wake of his passing left a void that was felt by his friends, classmates, teachers, acquaintances, parents, and even those that only knew of him through stories.
A specific example of Omar's kindness was his inclusion of many special needs students in his circle of friends. He made sure they were in his group on field trips and ate lunch with them as well.
These stories of unabashed true acts of kindness were done so without any extrinsic incentives; other than to feel the the joy by others knowing that it was simply the right thing to do. In short, the award recognizes those that will carry on his legacy of human decency and pay it forward so that we continue to #livelikeomar.
The inaugural award recipients were Colin and Jamie, who were voted by their peers and recognized as those that best exemplified Omar's character, kindness, and compassion.
