• High School Art Students Earn Spring Exhibit Awards and Scholarships

    The Spring Art Exhibit is sponsored every year at the high school. All students are encouraged to submit a work of art to be displayed, and the art teachers try to include something done by each student who took an art class that year.

    Members of the Upper St. Clair League for the Arts judge the show, awarding students Honorable Mentions, High Honors, Highest Honors, Best in Show and a scholarship for a student pursuing the study art in college.

    The exhibit and competition culminated with the Spring Art Awards that were held on May 27 at the High School.

    For his ceramics work, Teddy Staats earned the top prize “Best in Show,” and received the League for the Arts Scholarship and the William R. Shaffalo Scholarship. Teddy plans to study art in California.

    The Anna M. Smith scholarship was awarded to Manoli Despines, who is planning to pursue filmmaking in college. He won “Highest Honor” for his short film “Gizmo.”

    All of the art students were taught and sponsored by Ms. Robyn Smigel and Ms. Estelle Luck.
