Five AHS students will compete at the 2013 TAEA Visual Arts Scholastic Event in April. They are juniors Sarah Burger, Miranda Clair, Leah Hicks and Conner West, and senior Briley Sexton. This annual event recognizes exemplary student achievement in the Visual Arts by providing art students and programs a standard of excellence in which to achieve.

AHS students submitted 24 entries, of which 23 received a “4” rating – the highest possible. Of those, judges selected the ones to go on to state competition.

AHS photography instructor Sandra Sawyer said, “This is one of the best classes I have ever had ... a very creative and distinct group. I am lucky to have them, and want to say a really big ‘thank you’ to our principal and administration that continues to encourage and fund us.”
