Three Lakeland High School Art students recently painted two large metal cans to be used for recycling purposes in the park behind Farm Fresh on Main Street.  The contest was sponsored by the City of Suffolk as part of the Keep Virginia Beautiful campaign.

There were four entries from area high schools (NSA, KFHS, and two from LHS).  Lakeland senior, Tori Rountree, won first place!  Savannah Devers and Kellie Markovich (together) also had an entry. Tori’s can is up front on the left. Savannah and Kellie’s can is up front on the right.

Congratulations to these young ladies who did an outstanding job creating and painting original designs.
