At its October 4th meeting, the Wells-Ogunquit CSD School Committee recognized Wells Elementary School third grade student Lee Rollins for becoming the 2017 State and New England Regional first place winner in the second grade category of the annual Smokey Bear & Woodsey Owl Poster Contest. Presenting Rollins with a certificate recognizing his achievement was School Committee Chair Helena Ackerson and Superintendent James Daly who is holding the winning entry. Rollins’ poster was created in class under the direction of WES Art teacher Sandy Brennan who, in recent years, has had five other students place at either the state or New England regional level of this contest. Open to all first through fifth grade students, this national art contest strives to encourage children to be involved with natural resource conservation and wildfire prevention. It is sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the U.S. Forest Service, National Garden Clubs, Inc. and locally by the Seacoast Garden Club of Kennebunk.
