Michele Rosengarth‘s art students at East Rockingham High School have been working on four large mosaics, one each for the letters “E”, “R”, “H”, and “S” to represent their high school. Haley McGraw (left) and Katie Ellen share their favorite of the four, the “R” that highlights the arts. Haley and Katie will both pursue art degrees as they move on to college next year.
