National attention for a local artist
Getting around Shannon Park Elementary School can be a challenge for Belle Menne. The fifth grader has been diagnosed with Krabbes Disease, a condition that has confined her to a wheelchair and which severely limits her mobility. Her mind is still full of beautiful pictures, though, and one of those pictures has earned her a little national recognition.
Last week Menne learned one of her paintings will be on display at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
