LEESBURG -- Savana Harris, a senior at Lee County High School and the 2014 Congressional Art Competition winner for the 2nd Congressional District of Georgia, attended a reception in Washington, D.C. this summer at the U.S. Capitol.

The reception honored all the winners throughout the United States in grades 9-12. After the reception, Harris met with U.S. Rep. Sanford Bishop and also toured Cannon Tunnel in the U.S. Capitol where her artwork, “Keeping Identity,” will be on display for one year.

Harris’ artwork displays the frustrations that one often feels in life, coming from all sides. However, as tattooed on the girl’s arm in the artwork, there is always hope for a better tomorrow.

Harris is the daughter of Joey and April Harris and the sister of Noah Harris, all of Leesburg.
