|The Extraordinary Awards nomination certificate was painted by artist, Emmanuel Crespo. Emmanuel is a member of the Los Angeles Artist Association and a teacher at Bishop Alemany High School. His artist statement is "My work is produced from a well of collected images that I have absorbed over the course of my life. It has been a way for me to process and articulate the mythologies I have adopted, hybridized, and constructed. It is a product of my consistent search for and my construction of symbols and narratives in the world around me."
