Resourceful Maryland Senior Inspires His Community with Art

Lamont Hall combines entrepreneurship with creativity, proactively selling his artwork to pay for college.

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined.” 

Pocomoke High School senior Lamont Hall doesn’t just wish for things, he makes them happen. Lamont is passionate about art, music, and helping his community. Not only is he a talented artist, but was also gifted with an entrepreneurial spirit. He started to commission his artwork to proactively raise money for college. Lamont will be studying design at his dream school, Pratt Institute, starting this fall.

Lamont has created numerous art pieces for his school, including school spirit murals that inspire and set a vibrant tone for their space. He is also actively involved in community improvement, most recently building wheelchair ramps, and traveling to West Virginia to help Americans living in poverty.
