Conway High School Senior Emery Parker is soon to be a published illustrator!
It all started when Conway High Visual Art Teacher Carla Owen was approached by local author Caryn Southerland, needing help with a project. "She came to me looking for a student that could illustrate her children’s Christmas story. That is when I put her in touch with a Senior student of mine Emery Parker," said Owen.
Parker, who is also a National Merit Finalist this year, has been working with Southerland for almost a year now on this project. The book is currently in the prototype stage of completion and should be ready in time for Christmas 2015.
