This, in and of itself, is a huge honor. We are lucky to have several students recognized on a national and regional level for their amazing works!
However, we have just been told that our senior artist, Savannah Sawyer, has been awarded a National Scholastics Gold Medal for her artwork Pool Party (pictured below). This is a HUGE honor, shared throughout Scholastic's history with the likes of Andy Warhol, Stephen King, and many more. Out of over 230,000 works submitted, less than 2,000 were chosen for a national medal. Even less were chosen for Gold!
She is the only national medal recipient in Rutherford County, and it is well-deserved. She works tirelessly on her artworks, and cares so much about what she produces. Go Red Hawks!
Here is Savannah's National Gold Medal winning piece:
