WHS students win art, writing awards in Cleveland Clinic program
Six Westlake High School students were named winners in the Cleveland Clinic eXpressions program.
Cleveland Clinic eXpressions is an educational initiative that engages high school students in the exploration of science and medicine through creative expression. Students translate research studies conducted by Cleveland Clinic high school interns by producing artistic, literary and mathematical interpretations of the science.
In the art category, Katherine Mazzella won a Red Ribbon, while Kira Mudryk and Bridget Quinn won White Ribbons.
In the language category, Rachael Kaiser earned a Red Ribbon, and Norah Wilson and Hyun Park won honorable mentions for their short stories and poems.
The Westlake students competed against about 1,500 art, language and math projects from 51 schools. Red ribbon winners receive $75, white ribbon winners $50 and honorable mentions $25. Each teacher of an award-winning student also receives a $100 educational grant. WHS teachers who supported their students in this effort include Kelly Atkinson, Julie Davidson and Amy Klenz.
All six students will have their work displayed as part of the annual eXpressions eXhibition, Feb. 9-March 17, at the Global Center for Health Innovation.
