Dailey three score big at Chalk Walk

“The art development in West Knoxville in absolutely top tier!” An excited quote from mom Jamie Dailey, whose three children scooped up the ribbons at the Dogwood Arts Chalk Walk in downtown Knoxville on April 6, 2024.

Dailey’s oldest, Mary Katherine, is on the L&N STEM Academy’s team that is in the National Art Honor Society. The team placed second in the category of collaborative high school.

The second oldest, Elizabeth, is on the West Valley Middle School art department team. This team earned first place in the collaborative middle school category.

The West Valley art program, taught by Michael Seagraves, also won the People’s Choice award.

Harrison, a third grader from Northshore Elementary, participated as a solo artist. Harrison place third in the solo elementary school category.

Harrison’s art teacher, Stephanie Turpin, taught all three Dailey children as they progressed through elementary school.

Seagraves at West Valley Middle is carrying on the family tradition by teaching first Mary Catherine and now, Elizabeth.

The Daileys are definitely a tribute to the classroom experience in the west district art classes.
