Memorial Hospital Honors Artists from C.A.S.E.S.
Lake Charles Memorial Hospital recently honored students who participated in the Young at Art Program in April. The program, which spotlights artwork from a different local elementary school each month, was designed to make a positive impact on hospital patients, employees, and the young artists themselves.
April’s display featured artwork by the elementary students from C.A.S.E.S.. A panel of Memorial volunteers recognized fifth graders Johnavon London and Cantius Broussard and fourth grader JoVandon Scott with a $50 savings bond.
After being displayed at Memorial Hospital’s main campus, the artwork from all of C.A.S.E.S.’s participating students was sent to Memorial Hospital for Women to be enjoyed by patients and employees at that campus throughout the month of May.
“We would like to congratulate our young artists, and extend our thanks to them all for helping to brighten our hospital with their wonderful artwork,” said Kathy DeRouen, Memorial’s senior vice president of Marketing and founder of the Young at Art program.
