One of fifteen distinguished students from Miami to become a recipient of The Miami Herald / El Nuevo Herald Silver Knight Awards, Kaley Schwartz is the eighth student from New World School of the Arts (NWSA) high school to receive the prestigious silver statue. Selected from the Art category nominations, Kaley’s project entailed drawing portraits of children in the Cardiac Unit of Miami Children’s Hospital and donating them to their parents. “By capturing the innocence and beauty of a child in a portrait without the heartache of medical tubes and wires, I feel I am giving the families hope and peace,” said Schwartz.
