Valley Metro had a special guest at its January 18 board meeting. Harshita Rajesh, a Basis Peoria Primary student, was recognized for her winning artwork in the 13th Annual Valley Metro Cool Transit STUFF 3rd Grade Art Contest. She was joined by her family and teacher who all beamed with pride when she signed her winning artwork, next to Valley Metro Board Chair Councilwoman Suzanne Klapp and Valley Metro Rail Board Chair Councilmember Chris Glover.
Third grade students across the Valley were asked to design artwork showcasing this year’s contest theme, Valley Metro Connecting People to Places. The contest is part of a program that educates youth about safely riding public transportation. Nearly six hundred students entered.
