Flying Squirrels to host Chesterfield County students’ artwork

Posted on

Seven students from two Chesterfield County schools were among 15 winners in a recent art contest sponsored by the Richmond Flying Squirrels baseball team. Based on the theme “Welcome to Funnville,” works of art by these students will be displayed at The Diamond:

  • Brianna Bonilla, seventh-grade student at Swift Creek Middle
  • Ryland Cullum, seventh-grade student at Swift Creek Middle
  • Sophia Rivera, fifth-grade student at Evergreen Elementary
  • Celine Nghiem, seventh-grade student at Swift Creek Middle
  • Ashna Patel, seventh-grade student at Swift Creek Middle
  • Tatum Pratt, seventh-grade student at Swift Creek Middle
  • Abby Wambach, seventh-grade student at Swift Creek Middle

The students’ winning artwork will be transformed into a 4×9 foot sign and displayed on the main concourse wall at The Diamond. Each of the students will be recognized prior to the Flying Squirrels’ home-opener on April 13.

“We’re excited that the creative work of our students will be on display for all of Richmond to see,” said School Board member Dianne Smith, whose Clover Hill District includes Evergreen and Swift Creek Middle. “We’re also excited to be a part of this terrific partnership with the Flying Squirrels that encourages creativity and, as the baseball team is fond of saying, ‘funn’ in the field of arts.”
