Jennifer Salzman, instructor of photography at Lane, was featured on the front page of Eugene's The Sunday Register~Guard newspaper on June 1 for her work with North Eugene High School students. Salzman worked with Aaron Thomas, language arts teacher, to help students integrate photography and graphic design into their studies at the Academy of Arts.

Lane Students Win Awards at League for Innovation National Student Art Competition

I am so proud to announce that two of our students won Best of Show and Honorable Mention in the League for Innovation National Student Art Competition sponsored by the San Diego Community College District this year.

The First Place Best of Show was awarded to Deborah Taube, Lane Community College for an Untitled wood sculpture that was featured in the Lane Arts Division Student Arts Show in April.

Honorable Mentions were given to eight student artists including Linda D'Agosto Yaeger, Lane Community College, for an oil piece titled "It's Not Simple" also shown in the Lane Arts Division Student Exhibition. Under the leadership of San Diego City College, the competition included more than 90 works of art from League colleges.

We are so very proud of our student's work and our thanks go to Arts Instructor Adam Grosowsky for organizing the Lane the student submissions to the League of Innovation and to Jennifer Salzman and our gallery committee for mounting such an exciting student exhibition this Spring.
