The Johnson City Power Board recognized Lake Ridge Elementary School as the winner in its annual calendar artwork contest. The winning school earned a classroom set of 25 customized Electric Circuits KitBooks from Johnson City’s Edamar, Inc. The artwork adorns the JCPB’s 2014 calendar.
The school’s art teacher, Ann Ferenbach, said the school participates in this collaborative program with the Power Board every year. Ferenbach said, “It focuses on math and science.”
JCPB CEO Jeff Dykes said that the calendar contest was started as a way to increase involvement with the schools in the area, as well as to educate the younger generation on alternative energies and opportunities in the industry.
Lake Ridge Principal John Phillips said he was excited for the addition of the KitBooks to the school’s science curriculum.
