Good News: One of OUR Yegua Art students from Somerville High School, Kathleen Lambert has been chosen as the TX-17 winner of the 2021 Congressional Art Competition. Ms. Cochran, the Art Teacher from Somerville High School has been working with our office and speaks so highly of Kathleen and her artwork. Ms. Cochran has been wonderful to work with during this process. Congressman Sessions is thrilled she has been named the winner to represent our district for this year’s competition. Congressman Sessions along with our District Director, Scott Bland plan to meet Kathleen and some family members this Saturday, July 10 at the Caldwell Civic Center to meet her and retrieve the art work. The Congressman will be traveling with the artwork back to Washington D.C. where it will be featured in the Capital from October 2021-March 2022. Currently the Congressional Art Competition does not have a date for the reception, but it is a priority to hold a reception. However, the date is dependent on when the Capital Visitors Center opens up. We expect transportation to be provided by Southwest Airlines for her and a guardian to attend the reception. I am attaching a picture of Kathleen’s artwork for your reference. It is titled, “True Unity”. Congratulations to Somerville High School on this outstanding accomplishment.
