Award-winning: MCC students recognized for artwork
SCOTTVILLE — Five Mason County Central school district students have been recognized by the Michigan Art Education Association (MAEA) for their excellence in the arts.
At the high-school level, senior Laura Marque Liste and sophomore Katelyn Gramza were both top-100 finishers at the MAEA’s Michigan Youth Arts Festival. Liste made the top 33 at the festival, which qualified her piece for the Governor’s Traveling Show for High School Works, which will tour the state for one year.
At the elementary level, fourth-grader Arianna McClennen, fifth-grader Cole VanderHaag and kindergartener Abigail Van Wyck each received top-100 honors at the statewide MAEA Statewide Elementary Art Show. McClennen made the top 15, which qualified her for the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) Show, which will also be on display at the department of education for one year.
Rachel Brock, art teacher at the high school, as well as at Scottville Elementary and the Upper Elementary, oversaw the student entries into the competition, and said she’s proud of the hard work and dedication her students have committed to their respective projects.
“These are students who went above and beyond. They followed the project guidelines, but they put their own spin on it,” Brock said.
