Meet Bailee

Bailee is a sweet second-grader at Sacred Heart Elementary School in Kanawha County. She wants to be an art teacher, and she’s closer to her dreams of college after winning the annual SMART529 “When I Grow Up” essay contest.
“I just like art,” said Bailee, through a constant grin. “I like coloring and drawing.”
Bailee noted that she likes the way art allows her to use her imagination, and it makes her happy. She most enjoys drawing pictures of herself and animals, including her pet black lab.
In addition to her love of all things art-related, Bailee likes science and loves to read. In fact, when she’s not drawing or coloring, she’s likely reading.
Bright futures begin with SMART savings.
