Memorial Hospital Honors Gillis Elementary Artists

The program, which spotlights artwork from a different local elementary school each month, was designed to make a positive impact on hospital patients, employees, and the young artists themselves.

September's display featured artwork by the fourth and fifth grade students from Gillis Elementary.  A panel of Memorial volunteers recognized fourth graders Grace Monceaux and Brandon Naquin and fifth grader Jacob Sonnier with a $50 savings bond.

"We would like to congratulate our young artists, and extend our thanks to them all for helping to brighten our hospital with their wonderful artwork," said Kathy DeRouen, Memorial's senior vice president of Marketing and founder of the Young at Art program.
