Sandy Valley art teacher Summer Lidderdale has been selected as the 2020 Rookie of the Year.

"My favorite part of teaching is seeing my students grow into an art style, and being totally immersed and wanting to discover more," stated Lidderdale. "My students are amazing and innocent in the way that they can embrace the mess of art.

"Watching and guiding my students towards creating their own masterpieces by using their wildly unfiltered and beautiful imaginations is very rewarding."
