“I teach an art program that has grown exponentially this year at the Federal prison. Over the last twelve months, we celebrated several inmate graduations and successfully completed a mural at the Colorado Prison Museum in Canon City, Colorado. I was also able to organize two community outreach art exhibitions, and have another major mural in the works. It has been a very fruitful season and I feel very blessed to see God working in and around these inmates’ lives through creativity. I cannot thank you enough for the John and Lorraine Bandimere Jr. Endowed Scholarship! It has helped me tremendously with my financial responsibilities.”
