Westerly student's drawing published in national magazine
Bay Village has received national attention once again, this time thanks to the artwork of nine-year-old Holly Mack. After years of sending drawings to Highlights Magazine, Holly finally made it to the "Your Own Pages" section in the October 2013 issue.
The Westerly fourth-grader's drawing of a colorful chameleon, completed when Holly was eight years old, was selected by the magazine last year from more than 35,000 annual reader submissions. The feature includes her name, age and state. The October issue is on newsstands now.
"I have been trying for four years to get into Highlights and at age eight I finally got in. I was very excited," Holly said, adding an inspirational message: "Remember, never give up!"
The daughter of Jonathan and Lisa Mack, Holly enjoys pogo sticking, swimming, horseback riding, bike riding, fishing, acting and, of course, art.
