Syosset Artists Create a Lasting Memory

The Syosset High School chapter of the National Art Honor Society was recently rewarded for its efforts to celebrate the lives of children in the Eastern African country of Tanzania through an ongoing partnership with The Memory Project. A charitable nonprofit organization, The Memory Project invites art teachers and their students to create and donate portraits to youth around the world who have faced substantial challenges, such as neglect, abuse, loss of parents, violence, and extreme poverty.

Syosset students created portraits of the children of Tanzania. In return, The Memory Project put together the following video, which shows the children of Tanzania receiving these portraits. Kudos to all of the contributing students and to NAHS adviser and art teacher Demi Protonentis!
