STUDENT OF THE WEEK Kristen DeMelfy

Wednesday, November 7, 2012 by EMILY THIEL Special to The Press in School

Q. What grade are you in?

A. I am in 12th grade at Salisbury High School.

Q. What is your favorite subject? Why?

A. My favorite subject is art, because I've loved to draw ever since I was little. Another reason it's my favorite is it lets you express yourself, and it can literally be anything you want it to be. Without art, I think the world would be a pretty bland place. That's why I love to be creative at every opportunity I get, and spice things up with art.

Q. Have you received any special awards or recognition?

A. I am in National Honor Society.
