Louisiana first lady Supriya Jindal recently announced student artwork selected for display in the Louisiana’s Governor’s Mansion for August.
Ascension Parish students whose artwork will be displayed are Peyton Reulet and Justyn Buquois, seventh-graders at St. Amant Middle School; and Alyssa Collins, a fourth-grader at Sorrento Primary School.
“This month’s art displays the true talent of Louisiana’s young artists. Many of these magnificent pieces were inspired by Louisiana’s unique style, creating a cultural sensation for all who visit,” Jindal said.
