Twenty-nine students from Fuqua School have artwork on display at the Farmville-Prince Edward Community Library through April. “Lesley Stimpert, library volunteer, wanted to feature student artwork when she noticed that a large, 4-foot by 21-foot bulletin board that needed brightening up. Since the bulletin board is in the children’s section of the library, she thought elementary students’ artwork would be a great fit for this space,” Fuqua School officials said in a press release. When asked to supply the artwork, Forrest Layne, Fuqua art teacher, jumped at the opportunity. “I am really happy to have the chance for our students’ work to be spotlighted in a public space,” Forrest said.
