June 4, 2009 — For Carnival 2009, McDonalds asked the students in Julie Armbrusters art classes at Gladys A. Abraham School to illustrate their images of Carnival. From the many colorful depictions of carnival culture, McDonalds showcased the artwork of 13 students at the McDonalds Lockhart Gardens restaurant location during the week of Carnival.
On Monday and Tuesday, June 2 and 3 at the schools annual awards day, 13 students whose artwork was chosen received a personalized thank you letter and $20 in cash. It was an honor to share this wonderful artwork with the community," McDonalds, St. Thomas Regional Manager, Sandra Hardy said. "McDonalds is always happy to support youth arts programs, as art allows children to explore their vivid imaginations and express their creativity. A donation was also made to the schools art department for supplies.
