With so many outstanding submissions to choose from it was impossible for Newton County School System (NCSS) Superintendent Samantha Fuhrey to pick just one piece of artwork to feature on her official 2017 holiday card. In fact, she couldn’t even pick just two or three. Instead, forty pictures created by Newton County School System students will be featured on 20 different cards to be mailed to local elected and community officials, superintendents from surrounding school districts, and the many other supporters of Newton County Schools on Ms. Fuhrey’s holiday card list.

“This is a tradition that I am so proud to continue,” said Fuhrey. “I’ve received so many compliments since I started featuring student artwork on the holiday cards. In fact, before the holidays get here, people start asking me if they’re going to receive one of the cards again this year. They are quite popular!”

As in previous years, dozens of holiday designs—almost 150 to be in fact—were submitted by NCSS students of all ages and after spending over an hour reviewing the various submissions, Superintendent Fuhrey selected the following students’ designs to be featured on her 2017 holiday cards:

“I am so proud to have our students’ artwork on my cards,” said Fuhrey. “We have some very talented artists in our school system and featuring their creations on my cards is one way I can showcase that talent with others in our community. The pictures are absolutely beautiful and I want to thank each and every one of these students for taking the time to create artwork for my cards.”
