Panther Valley School District has inaugurated a program to recognize aspiring artists.
During a meeting of the Panther Valley School Board on Thursday, the first "artist emeritus" was recognized.
A drawing by sixth-grade student Alex Kessler was unveiled.
Kessler, now a student at Panther Valley Middle School, was an elementary student in fifth grade when she drew the line drawing with a Native American theme.
