Ward Melville High School senior Taylor Mussendon has been named one of 20 Long Island Arts Alliance Scholar-Artists for the 2012-2013 school year. Taylor was nominated for this honor by Ward Melville Chairperson for Art and Technology Jennifer Trettner and was selected based on her application, GPA, design portfolio, letters of recommendation and personal essay.
"Taylor is an amazingly talented, intelligent, determined and motivated student who excels in the graphic design program at Ward Melville,” stated Ms. Trettner. “She has a sophisticated design sense for a high school student, is articulate in her client presentations and understands the true meaning of teamwork."
In addition to being profiled in Newsday, Taylor will be recognized at the Usdan Center for the Creative and Performing Arts on September 20 and again in the spring at a reception at the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts.
