DECATUR, Ill. – State Rep. Sue Scherer, D-Decatur, is highlighting the art work of local students throughout her district who had the opportunity to display their paintings and poster designs in the Capitol.

“I am amazed at the creativity and talent from student throughout my district and their ability to craft such unique ideas,” Scherer said. “Giving our students the opportunity to display their artwork in our state’s Capitol recognizes the hard work and time they put into their posters and paintings and allows them to be proud of what they created.”
