Third-grader Ella Stephens, recently presented a $300.00 check from Lard Oil Company to Visual and Performing Arts Chair Shawn Halliday and Performing Arts Director Paige Gagliano during a recent Lower School chapel service. Ella's parents Jennifer and Wade Stephens were also on campus for the presentation.
In an effort to bring holiday cheer to its customers and support local schools, Lard Oil incorporated children’s artwork on its Facebook page and Christmas cards this year. For every picture submitted by employees’ children, the company offered to donate $100.00 to each child’s school. After learning of her three winning entries, Ella chose to designate the $300.00 donation to Episcopal’s performing arts program. In grateful appreciation for her philanthropy and artistic talent, Episcopal honored Ella during a weekly service in the school’s Lewis Family Memorial Chapel of the Good Shepherd on Friday, December 11.
Thank you Ella for supporting Episcopal's Art Department!
