For his outstanding contributions as an art coordinator, Harry is recognized on the Donors’ Wall of Fame by Village Elementary School students, parents, and staff of Emporia, Kansas.

A graduate of both Bethany College and the University of Kansas, Harry taught art in all the elementary schools in Emporia, Kansas, coordinated the Emporia Schools Christmas Program, and directed remodeling of nearly every school in town.

At Village Elementary School, his legacy includes the ceramic artistic bricks, which line the school hallways; the decor for the Village Library Media Center, office, and kindergarten rooms; the Colonial Crafts projects, which fourth graders have enjoyed; the art shows at Flint Hills Mall and The National Teachers Hall of Fame; the display panel, which Village Elementary School has at the Flint Hills Mall and Food-4-Less; countless Christmas projects, which children made for their parents; and countless art displays.

This is dedicated to Harry Hart, Art Coordinator for the Emporia Public Schools, by the Village Elementary School students, parents, and staff upon his retirement after thirty-seven years in the Emporia Public Schools.
