During the visit, the students explained their artwork to BP Oddo, talked to him about their career goals, and got a tour of his office. They also asked him questions about issues in our community, such as the drug epidemic and our growing deer population. Several of the students noted that the process of creating art was a source of stress relief for them during the busy school year.
“I was impressed not only by the students’ artwork, but how much they knew about the issues facing Staten Island,” noted BP Oddo. “These students exemplify all of the great things that are happening in our schools, and I’m proud to give them a space to share their artwork.”
The artwork will be on display in Room 125 through the month of June.
