Fifteen artists, including Edwardsville High School students and graduates, made original works featuring Dr. Ed Hightower, Superintendent of District 7, to honor him as EAC Patron of the Arts 2014.  Jacquelyn Dezort, former Board President of the EAC, said, “Due to Ed’s vision, the EAC has been able to focus on our mission ‘to inspire the lives of youth and the creative spirit of adults through classes, exhibits and cultural events.’ Before the partnership, the EAC was forced to focus primary energies on fundraising.  Ed was able to imagine the amazing benefits the partnership could bring to the district and community.  We would not have accomplished half of our current successes without his foresight.”
