Harrison High School Art Students Create Design to Represent Georgia at the 2019 National Easter Egg Roll
The White House invited schools across the nation to create a design for an egg representing their state or territory. Harrison High School art students were asked to create the design to represent the state of Georgia. The design will be displayed as guests enter the event to illustrate the vast footprint of the Easter Egg Roll and represent Georgia families in attendance. The 141st annual White House Easter Egg Roll event will be held on the White House’s South Lawn on April 22nd, with more than 30,000 families expected to attend. The Easter Egg Roll dates back to 1878 under the Administration of President Rutherford B. Hayes.
Led by Harrison High School art teacher, Tanya Turner, students created a design that incorporates famous Georgia imagery. Along with historical symbols and the state motto, the current Atlanta skyline was included to reflect the state’s capital city.
