Alternative High School Plans Art Show at WSU

PULLMAN, Wash. — Six students from Eclipse, Pullman High School’s alternative program, will display their art at an exhibit planned for 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 10, at the ground floor atrium in Cleveland Hall on the Washington State University campus. Refreshments will be provided and the public is invited, according to Steve Duncan, Eclipse program director.

The six Eclipse artists were taught by two WSU graduate students who volunteered as teachers, Duncan said. The two graduates, Bob Hanes and Cheryl Henry, are both doctoral candidates at the WSU College of Education.

The Eclipse program, located at Cleveland Hall, has been very successful because WSU students can easily volunteer as mentors, tutors and teachers, Duncan said. The art program is an example of the way in which the Eclipse children benefit from the partnership with WSU, he said.

The six Eclipse students are Joshua Palmer, Sarah Hardin, Marchand Kay Banks, C.J. Griffin, Shannon Plunkett, and Ari Hedrick.
