Paragon Showcases Woodland Presbyterian Art

Paragon Bank is currently showcasing artwork from Woodland Presbyterian School students in the lobby of its Saddle Creek banking center (7600 Poplar Avenue) for the community to enjoy throughout February. The bank has a great partnership with Woodland, as Robert Shaw, Chief Executive Officer at Paragon, has been active on the school’s board for eight years.

“The students, teachers and staff of Woodland have a special place in my heart, and Paragon is honored to continue our relationship with the school by displaying some inspiring art from these young artists,” said Shaw.

Paragon worked with Woodland Presbyterian School art teacher Sue Spice to display a variety of pieces, including animal portraits and outdoor sceneries. The artwork was created by nine students in kindergarten through middle school. Student artists include Chloe Brown, Abbie Downs, Bree Henry, Avery Jones, Madalyn Lichterman, Rhetta Massey, Dedrick Miles, Perrin Mullinax and Ben Ziegler.
