Northwood Arts and Science Academy's fledgling Art Club received a substantial boost with a $2,500 donation in memory of Terry Scott, a Crestview artist who died last fall.

"This is going to set us up for the whole year," volunteer visual arts teacher Kristal Petruzzi said. "We do everything out of our own pockets."

In addition to the monetary gift, Scott's widow, Sherrie Scott, also donated one of the late artist's paintings to the school library's collection of local artists' works.

Petruzzi said the evocative scene, a look into a furnished room through an old window frame, captures the Cougars' imaginations.

"They've all been coming right up to it and noticing things," she said.

"Art, science and music are so important to our children," Sherrie Scott said. "Terry would want to see it continue. I just hope he has left a good legacy."
