Krueger student wins first place in Via's art contest

Thanh and her mom.

Congratulations to Thanh Nguyen for winning the first place award presented to her by Via Metropolitan Transit. Thanh is an eighth grade student at Krueger Middle School. Campus representatives and Thanh's mom congratulated the young artist at the award ceremony on May 14, which included a luncheon and presentations from Chief William McManus and esteemed officials Alex Briseno and Charles Gonzalez.

Thanh’s design won her a cash award along with additional prizes. Her work will be featured around the city as it travels on the side of its featured bus. The art piece shows a brilliantly colored VIA bus driving through a tunnel surrounded by warning signs to caution pedestrians not to dart in front of the bus.
