Pages Inspires Students through Art-Infused Writing
In high school, you can often hear students complaining about their calculus final, an English paper they had to write or a chemistry lab gone wrong; but rarely do you hear high school students complaining, or even discussing, art. Due to funding cuts across Ohio, classes like art, dance, music and creative writing do not exist in many schools. Very few students have the opportunity to engage with, have conversations about, or learn alongside art because there is less and less exposure to art in schools, especially in high school. Dionne Custer Edwards, Wexner Center for the Arts educator and manager, school partnerships, hopes her work in central Ohio schools will help shift the conversation.

What drew Ciehanski to nursing was the impact that she could have on people in everyday life. She spoke about how she is indecisive, and the decision to pursue nursing was something she had to battle with.
