U.S. Representative John Rose (TN-6) recently named Ian Hooper from Pope John Paul II High School as the winner of the 2021 Congressional Art Competition for Tennessee’s Sixth District.

The artwork is inspired by Ian’s work with a ministry program aimed at aiding the homeless population. Through that work, Ian met John Amos who has lived on the streets for more than 30 years.
