Student Art Honors

Talented students of all ages were honored April 28 by the Spring Branch ISD Board of Trustees during its regular monthly meeting.

In all, 55 young artists were honored for winning a variety of regional, state and national awards and scholarships. At the Board of Trustees meeting, 27 students appeared in person to receive a district medal and to be honored by Trustees.

Students were honored for awards that ranged from the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s ultimate recognition, Grand Champion, to many national Scholastic Key awards.

At the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo’s school art auction, works by students in SBISD high schools sold for $313,000 total. Students retain a portion of Rodeo auction proceeds.

Separately, district art students who are seniors have won additional scholarships valued at more than $260,000 through various colleges, universities and business organizations.

SBISD Visual Arts Coordinator Sally Doyle prepared and moderated the Board of Trustees presentation, which included art created by the honored students.
