SMHS Recieves Jackson Paper Donation

Jackson Paper Manufacturing, Sylva, has donated $500 plus paper to support the visual arts program at Smoky Mountain High School. The money will be used to repair the ceramics kiln and purchase needed art materials. Students will use the paper for a variety of projects including the creation of sumi-e (Japanese ink wash) paintings.

"We are very excited to expand the visual arts experiences at SMHS," said visual arts teacher, Dr. Autumn Hall. "The generous donation from Jackson Paper will help provide many additional opportunities for our students."
