Nwsa’s Kaley Schwartz Receives Silver Knight Award
Kaley Schwartz has become the eighth student from New World School of the Arts High School to receive the prestigious Silver Knight Award. Kaley’s project, winning her the award in the Arts category, entailed her painting portraits of children in the Cardiac Unit of Miami Children’s Hospital and donating them to the parents. To date, Kaley has gifted more than 50 framed portraits and plans to keep her project alive as a way of offering a respite to parents with children in the Intensive Care Unit. At NWSA Kaley held a solid 5.9 GPA and received three Honorable Mention Scholastic Art Awards as well as an Honorable Mention in the South Florida Science and Engineering Fair. She was also the vice-president of the Science Honor Society and the National Art Honor Society. She will be attending FSU in the fall and plans to double major in Anthropology and Art History. Ultimately, her goal is to become a curator.
