Students Place First in County Art Show

Three students from the Long Beach Unified School District earned first place honors at the recent Los Angeles County Office of Education Art Exhibit.

Stephens Middle School student Josue Vaca won first place in the middle school category.  Millikan High School students Jennifer Kovacs and Eric Garcia earned top honors in the high school category.

Despite ongoing, multi-billion-dollar cuts to California's public schools, the Long Beach Unified School District has maintained award-winning programs in the visual and performing arts, even as other school districts have cut such programs significantly
