Lake Charles Memorial Hospital recently honored students who participated in the Young at Art Program in October. 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.
October’s display featured artwork by the elementary students from Hamilton Christian Academy. A panel of Memorial volunteers recognized fourth graders Brendan Ford and Katie Kleinschmidt and fifth grader Cydney Derrick 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.
