The senior will begin her career at Sweetwater Elementary School in Douglas County as an art teacher.

"The staff and professors at UWG were supportive and encouraged me throughout my college career and as I began job interviews," said Head. "I'm not sure what would have become of me without them."

The UWG Senior Show will run through Friday, July 11, and the community is invited to attend this free event. Head’s extensive collection of work includes watercolors and mixed media. The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The university offers several undergraduate and graduate degrees in the arts including studio art, art history and art education. Head will graduate in the summer commencement ceremony on August 2.
