Esperanza Academy Students Join Haffner’s for the “Art Is Everywhere: Lawrence Is a Masterpiece” Contest Vehicle Roll Out

Students, parents and faculty from Esperanza Academy recently joined Haffner’s at its corporate office to celebrate the roll out of their newly designed oil truck featuring incredible artwork from the “Art Is Everywhere: Lawrence Is a Masterpiece” Contest. Congratulations to student winners: J’nyla, Jordyn, Michelle and Briany!


In late fall 2019, Esperanza Academy students were asked by Haffner’s to find beauty in their local surroundings and then transform it into a design for an oil truck. “The contest challenged our students to seek and pay attention to the art and beauty that surround us in Lawrence,” said Jadihel Taveras, Head of School, Esperanza Academy. “Each student brought their creativity, energy and talent to the project.”


“We are so grateful to have the seeds of awareness, community pride and confidence from this project planted in our girls,” said Lillian Leggio, Art Teacher, Esperanza Academy. “When they look back at their time at Esperanza, this will be one of their fondest memories.”


The vehicle roll out party, hosted by Haffner’s, was a huge success! The Esperanza community and Haffner’s staff enjoyed music from Power 102.9, pizza from Tripoli Bakery, custom Esperanza and Haffner’s cookies from Mrs. Fields and more!
