Parker Education is proud to be a sponsor of the UMOJA Gala for the second year in a row. We are also proud to have our students working on creating artwork for UMOJA! To be used as centerpieces, we have been painting brightly colored mandalas on old records. The students have come up with some very creative designs!
Jessie Bair, graduating in 2020, was offered early acceptance into RIT, School of Illustration.
We are so excited for Jessie Bair, a member of our 2020 Senior class, who has just been accepted through early decision to her first choice of colleges- Rochester Institute of Technology where she will be majoring in Illustration. Jessie’s goal is to become a writer and illustrator of children and young adult books.
Jessie has always enjoyed and excelled in the arts, taking every art class that Parker Academy has to offer. She enjoys Drawing and Painting the most, but has had a lot of fun working in Ceramics, too. Her favorite medium is watercolor and colored pencils which she uses to create her favorite subject- mythical creatures. One such work, titled “The Hippocampus” was displayed in Crust and Crumb in downtown Concord.
Jessie first came to Parker Academy part time for tutoring, but it was soon after that she enrolled full time as a Freshman. Prior to Parker Academy, she had been home schooled by her parents. Jessie lives in Epsom with her parents and two older brothers.
Congratulations, Jessie. We are so proud of you, and we look forward to hearing all about your upcoming adventures.
