They were all winners, but the big hit was the jaguar.

At Tuesday’s meeting of the Garden Grove Unified School District Board of Education, the top winners of the 45th annual First Impressions student art show were recognized, along with the classified and certificated employees of the month.

DANYA REYNA, winner of the Superintendent’s Award for “The Day of the Dead Cat.”

From Jordan Intermediate, Bradley Robinson, a technology specialist was honored for classified employee honors. On hand to celebrate and be in the photos with him was the school’s jaguar mascot, or a person inside a jaguar costume at least.

The certificated winner was Jennifer Liu Hansen, a teacher at Peters K-3 Elementary School.

Among student artists, the superintendents’ award went to Danya Reyna of Evans Elementary. Other winners included:

  • Enrique Rosas of McGarvin Intermediate (President of the School Board Award)
  • Isabella Flores of Rancho Alamitos High (Mayor’s Award)
  • Seth Nguyen of Patton Elementary (PreK-6 Best in Show)
  • Franchesca Santa Maria of Irvine Intermediate (7-8 Best in Show)
  • Jessica Dearing of Santiago High (9-12 Best in Show).

The GGUSD is a K-12 district serving most of Garden Grove and portions of adjacent communities.
