St. Clare student wins Oregon Holocaust Resource Center art competition
Kenley Borgerson, an eighth grader at St. Clare School, has won the grand prize in Oregon Holocaust Resource Center annual art competition. She will get a free trip to Washington, D.C. for herself and Marie Acurso, art teacher.

Kenley created her provocative photo illustration by asking fellow students to tell her what derogatory names she has been called. She wrote those hurtful words on blindfolds and put them on her peers, snapping a photo. Kenley then created a grid of the photos as a way to express the dehumanizing power of words.

She received recognition at last week’s awards dinner, to which Holocaust survivors are invited. Reilly Santa, also a St. Clare eighth grader, won first prize in the competition for her category. Mia Hermann, another member of the class of 2014, received first place in the essay contest and honorable mention for her artwork.  

A member of the St. Clare class of 2015 has gained national recognition for photography. Lilly Landis-Croft travels to Carnegie Hall in New York for a June 6 award ceremony for an innovative mixed media flat book, which shows red lanterns in a black and white context and pops into three dimensions. Lilly’s work won a national Gold Key in the venerable Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. It’s a first for St. Clare students, who have won many regional gold and silver keys in the four years the school has taken part.

Regional winners had their work hung at Pacific Northwest College of Art and were recognized at the Portland Art Museum.

Acurso says Lilly is innovative and has a keen eye.

“Judges are looking for students who show skill and craftsmanship, but more important is that they are using personal voice,” Acurso says. “Lily does that.”

Acurso says the awards encourage young artists and make it clear that art requires critical thinking and understanding a visual language.

In the regional competition, Lilly won two gold keys and three honorable mentions for a body of work. Regional gold keys also went to Borgerson, Clare Duda and Alyssa Hughes. Silver keys went to Ally Baker, Olivia Groshong and Claire Noonan. Noonan and Marielle Lefave received honorable mention.

The 19 eighth-graders at St. Clare School in Southwest Portland soon will join the ranks of alumni at a graduation ceremony set for 7 p.m. Friday, June 6 in the church.  Recently, eighth grade teacher Cathy Kollars asked her class to reflect on their experiences school:
On what they learned the most:

• “…I have learned…the value of a community, and to always try to reach my goals…”

• “The most important thing I learned at St. Clare was that we always have to put others before ourselves….I will always keep this in my heart all throughout high school and my whole life….”

• “At St. Clare School, I learned that my opinions and thoughts are important, and that I should listen to others…..”

“The most important lesson that I have learned at St. Clare is how to be a good human being. I’ve been taught how to be kind, patient, loving and caring.”

• On parting advice for rising eighth graders:

• “..come into the year with an open mind…..The little kids look up to you, act responsibly, and mature……Don’t wait till the last night to do your Social Studies project…..In the end, have fun and get to know your classmates, because next year you are all off on your different paths, and life is going to change very much.”

• “….be confident in yourself, and it’s okay to go against the flow. Don’t make yourself into something you’re not to fit someone else’s expectations, work on making yourself into someone that exceeds your expectations. Be confident in who you are and be kind to yourself…..And, of course, do your homework even when it seems mundane. It pays off later.”

• “….eighth grade is when you learn to be a leader, and to be in solidarity with other people, not just in the school, but in the entire world.”

Here are the graduates: Kenley Borgerson, Ann Brennan, Michael Cosper, Laura Gregoire, Cecilia Hare, Mia Hermann, Chloe Koenen, Grace Kyle, Dylan Lefor, Aimee Lutz, Santo Mallon, Natalie Manlove, Joseph Murche, Claire Noonan, Bridget O’Brien, Reilly Santa, James Ryan, Guy Symonds, Sean Tehan
