2nd Place: Michael Raucci

I am a current Honors College student of Millersville University class of 2022, majoring in Biology and minoring in Studio Art. I also perform with the Lyric Band of Hanover during the summer as a Bari Saxophonist. I am self-taught in animation and working on independent projects. I also like to take time to participate in community art opportunities.

3rd Place - Linda Inners

I’m a longtime resident of York County, and my passion for art was fueled in high school by my art teacher, Mrs. Muriel Groff. I went on to study art at Bradley Academy for the Visual Arts and Millersville University. It’s been a pleasure for me to share my passion for art through teaching students of all ages, and currently I’m volunteering as an art teacher for House of Hope in Glen Rock and as a worship painter for Providence Community Church of Spring Grove. For over 10 years, I have coached the York Home School Association’s Envirothon team. It’s encouraging to see conservation embraced by these young people and so many others in our community. It means a lot to me to be selected for this project because I believe that art work is heart work. I’m grateful for the opportunity to share my artwork in a way that contributes to conservation awareness through the “Street2Creek” project
