Birmingham-Southern staff member is a 2008 White House Egg Artist
BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Susan Willard, assistant director of records at Birmingham-Southern College, has been selected by the American Egg Board as a state egg artist for the 2008 White House Egg Artist's Tour. Willard was selected to represent Alabama by creating an egg depicting the state.
The 2008 Easter Eggs collection continues the tradition began in 1994 where each state sends a decorated egg to the White House for display. Each year the artists from across the U.S. and the District of Columbia vote among themselves to select an artist to create the following year's commemorative egg which is presented to the president and first lady.
Willard will travel to Washington, D.C. to take part in the annual White House Egg Artists Tour on March 10. Activities will include an artist event with First Lady Laura Bush, a White House tour and a group luncheon.
