This year's event was a hallmark occasion for Reigna and her parents, as her artwork marks not only the face of the 2017 event but, it is her last Carver Celebration prior to her graduation from Carver Center.
Reigna's "Big Brother - Tribe of One" painting dawned the magnets that were given out to guests as a complimentary gift.
