BOSSIER CITY, La - A local student's senior project is sure to have a lasting impact on one area family. Haughton High School student Nakia Devereaux created a beautiful work of art, which he will present Saturday to the recipients of a home from the Fuller Center for Housing.

In conjunction with the house dedication, Nakia will present the homeowners with a 5'x7' original painting. It has already been installed in the living room.

"I painted this piece to show how art and feelings can become one. I did this painting from my heart and used my God given abilities. Without him, I could not have painted The Sunshine of Faith", Nakia said.

The house will be dedicated at noon at 2000 Nina Street in Bossier City.

On a related note, the Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency recently awarded Nakia the 1st place state award for his entry in their poster contest. He won an iPad, certificate, framed copy of his original artwork and other goodies. His artwork will now be printed on LOPA's T-shirts, calendar and website.
