Enjoyed Burroughs High School art story

To the Editor:

I want to say how much I enjoyed seeing the article this week on the arts at Burroughs High School! It will perhaps be enlightening to many in our community to think about the value of the visual and performing arts for students’ growth.

I have been so pleased that our school district has retained its arts programs, when for so many communities such programs have been drastically cut. Some students even find their passion in the arts and not in the math and academic subjects. The balance is what is so important in the offerings for students.

(My own son Alan found his passion in sports, and it kept him in high school with some outstanding coaches in Sierra Sands.)

Thank you for bringing this important part of education to light.
