Ohio students mail soldiers overseas holiday cheer
on Friday,December 10,2010 15:12
Individuals who use art as a creative outlet can not only positively influence those around them, but people abroad as well. Recently, a group of Ohio art students utilized their talents to raise the spirits of soldiers serving overseas, the Middletown Journal reports.
Approximately 75 high school students from Monroe, Ohio, created holiday cards to send to military officials in Afghanistan. More than 125 cards have been created since November, according to high school art teacher, Diana Mueller. They will be sent to U.S. Marine staff sergeant, Brian Dillon, and his troops.
"I got an email from Brian's aunt in October saying he was on his fifth tour of duty and anyone that might want to correspond with him, here's his address," Mueller told the news source. "The kids were excited by it."
Dillon's aunt, Ann Hinkle, has written a letter to her nephew, asking him if he would like to meet with the students when he returns home. The sergeant is expected to return home by February 2011.
Employment of artists is predicted to increase by 12 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Projects, such as the one being completed by Monroe students, may inspire kids to pursue a career in the industry in the future.
