Stone oak artist wins river parade art contest

Stone Oak Elementary School student Rosie Ganske will finally have her art featured on the cover of the 2014 Texas Cavaliers River Parade Program. This was her fourth time as a finalist and her first time to win the grand prize. Rosie will ride with the Grand Marshal of the Parade, Sgt. Leroy Petry.

NEISD had two students selected to represent their city council district. West Avenue Elementary School student Alexander Vara was selected from City Council District 1. Stone Oaks' Rosie Ganske was selected from City Council District 9. They each earned $1,000 for their school to buy art supplies. They also receive a scholarship for a week at the Southwest School of Art.

Both students were recognized at a press conference at the Southwest School of Art, Tuesday, March 4. The Texas Cavaliers invited district leaders, school principals and teachers, along with each students' family for the announcement.

The Texas Cavaliers River Parade is April 21. For more information, click here.
