Student Nomination Story

Throughout middle school I had a lot of great teachers that helped me through school, but none of them were as helpful as Kenton Wesby. He was my art teacher in middle school and a good mentor for the four years I was there. I will be honest, I wasn’t that focused with school work and was very shy, but throughout the years I learned a lot about art and life itself. When I first went to DuPont Hadley, I was scared. When I went to the art class for the first time I could tell he was a nice teacher; I enjoyed his teaching and wanted to come to his class every day. I learned a lot about art, and each year I wanted to learn more and more about art and different ways of making art. I found something I enjoyed and wanted to do more of when I got older.
