Small Town Times May 2018 Rilee Howard’s Art Wins Visit From Congressman Adrian Smith By: Mrs. Varah Rilee Howard, a sophomore at Litch- field High School, found out this week that her photography will soon hang in the Washing- ton D.C. office of Congressman Adrian Smith. Every year the nation recognizes excellence in visual art from each state with the Congres- sional Art Competition. Congressman Smith awarded Rilee’s photography “Details” with second place. Visitors to Congressman Smith’s office in D.C. will view Rilee’s beautiful picture of a milkweed growing near Litchfield, Nebras- ka. The art will remain on display there for one year. Congratulations Rilee and thank you for representing Litchfield and earning our town a visit from Congressman Adrian Smith. Rilee is the daughter of Bill and Britt Howard of Litchfield. The visit will be open to the public in the Spartan gym on May 1, at 2:50 pm. Congressman Smith will address our school and community, answer questions and congratulate Rilee Howard.■ SUMMER SCHOOL NEWS Summer school will be held at Litchfield School from June 11 to July 20, 2018 in the blue building.
