Girl Scout Helps Art Class Participants Stay Clean
The MonDak Heritage Center recently received a gift of 30 handmade art smocks from Sidney student Shelby Reidle. Reidle made each of the smocks as part of her Girl Scout Gold Award Project. Approximately 25 hours went into the creation of the smocks, which will be used in the wide variety of art classes that Education Coordinator Jessica Newman teaches each month.
Reidle is a senior at Sidney High School, and will be attending Concordia College in Moorhead in the fall. She will major in biology and history. When asked why she picked the project, Reidle said that she loves to sew and it was a wonderful project she could work on with her grandma, Ruth Reidle. She noticed the need for the smocks when she attended art classes at the MonDak and saw how messy some of the projects were.
The MonDak Heritage Center would like to send a huge thank you out to Shelby and Ruth for their support of the museum and the education program!
