Hermitage student wins VSBA Southside Regional Art Contest

Renee Ritchie of Hermitage High School was named the High School winner for her artwork “Masterson’s Closet” in the Virginia School Boards Association Southside Regional Art Contest.

The winning art is framed and displayed in the offices of the VSBA in Charlottesville and the Richmond office of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Student art from the elementary, middle, and high school levels represented each school division in the Virginia School Boards Association Southside Regional Art Contest, judged at the regional forum for area school board members.

The VSBA Regional Art Contest was started in 1989 to promote the artistic talents of Virginia’s public school students. For each of the nine VSBA regions, a winner is chosen for the elementary, middle and high school levels.

Short Pump Rotary volunteers help with rebuild, repair


On June 13, the Short Pump Rotary Club partnered with Schnabel Engineering for a day of volunteer work with Rebuilding Together Richmond. Team members (among them [from left] Chris Rufe, Melissa Abraham, Rick Naschold, and Micky Ogburn) completed a variety of repairs and home improvements ranging from painting and landscaping to cabinet installation and fence building.

“It was a privilege to be involved in this project," said club president Melissa Abraham. "The homeowner kept thanking the volunteers, but I think all of us would agree we are the ones who actually benefited.

A triumphant return

Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ is a magnificent, emotional ride

Explaining the nuts and bolts of Pixar’s new, exciting, innovative Inside Out – really digging into the film’s shape-and-color explanation of the human mind – would take up the entirety of this review. And probably three or four more (if movies had instruction manuals, Inside Out’s would be the size and general poundage of a cinder block).
