The Malaga Bank Earth Day coloring and drawing competition selected Sasha Suggs of Nativity School in Torrance as its drawing finalist. The fifth-grader was all smiles while posing with her entry as she received a gift card on April 27.
Rafael Rodriguez, a first-grader at Nativity, received an honorable mention.
The Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce sponsored the event to help provide creative opportunities for students. Bryan Grageda, Malaga Bank’s retail banking manager in Torrance, provided poster enlargements and certificates for the Nativity School students.
Terry O’Connor, Nativity’s development director, thanked Grageda for reinforcing the school’s efforts to educate their students about the meaning of environmental values.
O’Connor also thanked the chamber’s many programs for fostering professional relationships centered on friendship and support.
