Power APAC fourth- and fifth-grade art students will make great use of the supplies donated by Springhill Suites and delivered by the Ridgeland location manager, Jimmy Stuart.

This is the third year that Springhill Suites in Ridgeland has supported the Power APAC Visual Arts Department. Each fall, the Suites lobby is transformed into an art gallery featuring art from Power APAC student artists in grades 4–12. Visitors and patrons of the hotel donate funds
towards the support of the school's art department during this event, called "Ask For More Arts." Their donations buy much needed and appreciated art supplies for use by all of the students throughout the school year.

"Thank you, Springhill Suites. We appreciate all you do for us," said Kinsey. "Your support enriches our school to continue to 'Strive for the Mountaintops' "
