Thirteen RBR Students’ Art Work Chosen for Monmouth Day Care Art Journal
RBR Takes High School Grand Prize Award
Thirteen students from Red Bank Regional’s (RBR) Barbara Beckett’s art class had their art selected as ads for the Monmouth Day Care Center (MDCC) Art Journal in this their 50th birthday celebration year. RBR freshman Susanne Lopez, Red Bank, was the grand prize winner for the high school level with her ad created for Hemphill Associates. The other twelve RBR winners included: Anjali Narang, Little Silver; Penelope Buchanan, Little Silver; Ava Forbes, Little Silver; Remi Ryan, Red Bank; Ellie Colella, Shrewsbury; Felipe Solar Flores, Red Bank; Cecilia Conte, Little Silver; Shelly Vazquez, Red Bank; Catherine Medina, Red Bank, Adrianna Donato, Shrewsbury; Stacy Osorio Perez, Red Bank and Brenna Kilcooley, Little Silver.
The artwork was selected to represent each journal business sponsor. Over 200 entries were submitted from among eight Monmouth County schools. The student winners and their teachers were recognized at an ice cream social held at the Monmouth Day Care Center on June 11. The art journal is a major fundraiser for the Center.
MDCC Executive Director Heidi Zaentz told the young artists and their parents why the art journal to which they contributed was so important stating, “We are a nonprofit organization where 90% of our students are from struggling families that find it hard to make ends meet. So we subsidize their tuition with fundraisers like this journal.”
The Monmouth Day Care Center was founded in 1969 under the sponsorship of the Revitalization Corps, National Council of Jewish Women, Greater Red Bank Section, Junior League of Monmouth County, Council of Churches, and Negro Business and Professional Women’s Club of Central New Jersey. It is devoted to serving families in Monmouth County seeking quality childcare, without regard to race, religion, ethnicity or economic status.
