Young Artists Show Support for NMHS Student and Sparrow in Art Show
    Students at North Medford High School can support their Sparrow, Hailey Maddox, by bidding on the artwork from Ms. Louise’s Intermediate Art Class, showcased in the Auditorium Lobby, Media Center, and Commons. There are 42 pieces in the show, and bidding will continue through December first. Seven pieces currently hold bids between $25-$45.
     Louise first proposed the idea to the artists one day when Maddox was absent from the art class. “They didn’t know yet who the Sparrow was, and so I asked them, ‘Hey, when we finish our work, would you donate it to sell in an art show benefiting our Sparrow?’” Louise recalls. “Twenty-two of them said yes.”
     The theme of the art is “Contemporary Wildlife,” Louise shared. The art teacher told her students to focus on what wildlife meant to them in this modern 21st century, and to “use their own voice.”
     Maddox’s work can also be seen in the show (though it’s not up for sale); the drawing depicts a beautiful green lion, sporting dreadlocks, beads, and rasta colors. Maddox revealed that she was originally going to draw a bear but switched to a lion, “because they’re fierce, and strong,” she explained, “and I incorporated the rasta because it means peace.”
     The students of Intermediate Art and their teacher have hope that this can truly benefit their friend and Sparrow. “I think we’re going to have a very different relationship with our Sparrow this year, because she’s one of us,” Louise said. Those who wish to support young Maddox in her battle can e-mail Ms. Louise about bidding on a piece of artwork at

More information can be found at Hailey's page at Sparrow Clubs USA. KDRV profiled her here, as well. Saturday's performance of DIRK raise approx $350 for Hailey and the Encore Performance on Tuesday will split proceeds 50/50 between Sparrow Club and the drama event travel fund.
