SACO – Students are often asked to pursue their passions, to chase their dreams. For Lorraine Sun, a senior from Guangdong, China, her hope was for an education that focused on the arts. This led her to Thornton Academy.
Before she was even enrolled in any classes, Sun entered a local contest and submitted some of her paintings. She was only 5-years-old, but she won. She and her parents decided to formally enroll her at two schools, one for traditional subjects and one for art. But her art classes met only once a week.
