“SCHOLL’S WHITE ROSE” wins the Chair’s Choice Award Wednesday night at Temple Israel as part of Holocaust Remembrance Week. Senior Sophie Bement’s sculpture represents the many innocent lives lost during the Holocaust.

The CHS Art department was heavily represented at Yom Hashoah at Temple Israel Wednesday night as part of Holocaust Remembrance Week.

Several students had several pieces of art chosen for display, but senior Sophie Bement won the Chairs Choice award in the Elie Weisel contest for her beautiful sculpture, “Scholl’s White Rose”. The commission noted that they received thousands of entries from all over the United States, including North Korea.

“I am so proud of our students for participating and the Jewish community in Norfolk was very impressed and thankful for our efforts,” VanVeenhuyzen said.

VanVeenhuyzen believes that Art is a perfect grassroots voice for speaking against the hatred and discrimination that still continues today.

According to Art teacher Mrs. Van VanVeenhuyzen, they attended a very touching and humbling ceremony celebrating student artists and to remember the many people lost.

Senior Jordan Parker-Ashe won 3rd place for her touching essay. Here is link for the winners.
