Region One Art Educator of the Year 2017
Veronica Kruger, South Park High School- Buffalo Public Schools
It is with sincere appreciation that we announce our regional art educator of the year...Veronica Kruger. Veronica's energy and talents expand across the visual arts. She is a talented artist with work displayed across WNY. She has worked tirelessly to establish a fashion program in the visual art department at South Park HS. Her work with students is admired by her colleagues and the community.

Each of NYSATA's ten regions chooses one outstanding art educator to be awarded at the annual conference. The nominee must be a NYSATA member in good standing. Criteria include outstanding contributions to the field of art education and service to the regional and state organization. Veronica is most fitting of this designation and we look forward to celebrating this achievement on November 19 in Binghamton, NY.
