Elijah Hammonds, seventh grade student at Magnolia received an award and special recognition from Superintendent Dr. Johnny Hunt. With the help of his art teacher, Sonnie Locklear, Elijah drew a Christmas card that was printed and distributed to educators throughout the county. He was ecstatic! His passion for art has grown and his skills have been sharpened with the assistance of former art teachers. When Elijah isn't drawing in his sketch book, he is shooting hoops, reading, or hanging our with his family. He has a commitment to academics as well. Elijah received the Superintendent's Honor Roll in May. Although Elijah is only in seventh grade, he is already planning for the future. He is torn between engineering and computer technology.
