LB Board Meeting Honors Scholar Artist

The Long Beach Public Schools’ Dec. 14 Board of Education Meeting began with a round of applause for student Jovanna Vicente from members of the Board, administration, staff and community. Jovanna, a high school senior, was named a Scholar Artist in the media arts category of the Long Island Arts Alliance’s Scholar-Artist Awards program earlier this school year based on her extraordinary photography talents. She was formally recognized at a celebration in September and will again be honored at a reception in the spring of 2018.
