Retired SGS art teacher Linda Smith attended her first Las Vegas Raiders game at Allegiant Stadium on Oct. 10 and saw her paintings on display in the Raiders Hall of Fame!  Here she is (see photo) around section 228 with two of her paintings -- #80 James Lofton and #76 Bob "Boomer" Brown.  "It is such an honor to have been chosen as one of the artists for this project and to have my work displayed among so many amazing, incredibly talented artists!" she said in a Facebook post.  She has a third painting in the Hall of Fame as well.  Congratulations, Linda!
