The MCEC Call for the Arts program invites military-connected children from all over the world, representing every branch of service, to share interpretations through art of what it means to be a military-connected child. In this podcast, I spoke with one of the 2023 Call for the Arts high school winners: Reagan. Her artistic expressions of herself and her life as a military child tell an incredible story.

Reagan is also active in the National Honor Society, as well as in Mock Trial as her team's courtroom artist.
