September 4, 1987 D The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana 3 'Beginning the Tradition' at Holy Rosary H& School Two students at Holy Rosary designed a billboard promoting the east side Evansville school.

The billboard is located on Congress behind Eastland Mall. --Message Photos by Mary T, Ellert ll Student,,' artwork promotes school By MARY T. ELLERT Message Staff Writer Children's art is usually hung on bulletin boards or refrigerator doors. However, the artwork of two Holy Rosary students is being displayed big- ger than life -- on a billboard promoting the east side Evansville school. Brian Zahn, 7, and Elita Bogard, 6, designed the billboard which is located behind Eastland Mall on Con- gress Avenue until the end of this month. It shows two children standing outside of Holy Rosary School underneath the words, "Beginning the Tradition." Bogard drew the picture, while Zahn did the lettering. The use of the billboard was made possible when Naegele Outdoor Advertising donated it for a Holy Rosary student coun- cil raffle a few years ago. The winner gave it back for the school to use. The coupon was saved until last year when it was decided that "now was the time to publicize Holy Rosary and do something creative," ac- cording to Nancy Schum, principal. Schum said she wanted the billboard to be something that would make people smile when they saw it. "I hope that's what it does," she said. Jody Denosky, learning center teacher, and Nancy Grafe, kindergarten teacher helped the children complete the design used for the billboard. Donosky said she came up with the idea "Beginn- ing the Tradition" .because it relates to the Evansville Catholic High Schools' publici- ty campaign theme, "The Tradition." The tradition of Catholic Education all starts at the grade school level, she said. Zahn and Bogard shyly answered questions about the billboard for local television crews at a news conference held last week at the school. They seemed unawed at their newly- found status as billboard graphic artists. "I don't think they're as ex- cited as we are. I had to explain to Elita what a billboard was first," laughed her mother, Julie Sheridan.
