Seniors win 4th District Art Scholarships!

On Saturday, April 20th, Phoenix High School had a very big day. We had two winners in the 10th Congressional District Art Competition. This is the Hank Johnson district and includes students with an address around the southern Stone Mountain area of our county. Nia Gray won a $10,000 scholarship to Savannah College of Art and Design for her photograph "Melancholy". Her work will hang in Washington, DC at our capitol for one year. She will receive two round-trip tickets to Washington to participate in the award ceremony this summer. Matthew Orozco won a scholarship for $2500 dollars to Art Institute for the light painting "Dedication". This is the third time that a student at Phoenix has taken the top award at one of the congressional art award programs.
