Art award for artist with learning disabilities should be an inspiration

August 21, 2012

What a joyful, uplifting story that greeted me as I read my morning paper on Friday! The front page story on artist Dylan Guest ("Baltimore County grad wins national art awards," Aug. 17) should serve as an inspiration to every child with a "different" learning style, every parent and every teacher looking forward or dreading the start of the school year. The struggles and hardships this obviously gifted young man has gone through and now has not only overcome but triumphed is amazing. This is truly the definition of "It takes a village." Kudos to his insightful teachers, his loving and supportive family and most of all to Dylan.
