Cadet Staff Sgt. Logan P. Whitmore, a freshman at Riverside Military Academy, won the first-place medal in Georgia on April 27 at the Kiwanis Art Showcase.
Whitmore entered his painting, “The Floating Staircase,” in the mixed media category of the Kiwanis Club of Gainesville Art Showcase in March at the Quinlan Visual Arts Center and received the first-place ribbon for ninth grade.
Following the Gainesville competition, his painting was selected to compete at the state level in the Georgia District Kiwanis Foundation Art & Music Showcase in Carrollton. He won the first place out of all ninth-grade art entries for the state.
On May 8, Whitmore received a JROTC Academic Achievement Award for finishing in the top 10 percent of his class for the school year at Riverside Military Academy. He was a participant in the American Association of Teachers of German State German convention in January. He is also a member of Riverside’s track team.
