A Solon Salute this week from Flexible Pathways: Junior Sidney Ordway designed her fall semester independent study around her passion for and interest in drawing. Each green day Sidney arrives in the Flexible Pathways room and dives immediately into her sketch book! Her marking periods one and two drawings currently adorn and brighten up the space; visitors are welcome anytime to tour the "gallery."
