If you love St John and you love the Arts then this on-line auction is for you!
Diamond & Emerald Ring with starting bid of $4,800
Just over 30 years ago through the insight, love, and pure hard work of several people who loved St John, the Arts, and children the St John School of the Arts (SJSA) was formed. For the next 30 years there would be one constant -- Ruth "Sis" Frank. It was "Sis" who served as the very first manager for St John's steel band, a group of 28 young St Johnians who travelled to the Rose Bowl, Disneyland, and Europe, that served as the conception for the St John School of the Arts. "Sis' served as the School's Executive Director for 25 years and during her tenure the School became a force on the island. Today, the School has its own building which hosts such programs as dance, musical theatre, photography, piano, to name a few. Over 500 students annually are enrolled in the School's programs. SJSA's encourages self-expression and self-esteem to help foster a sense of accomplishment, providing a firm foundation in life.
