AAHS student wins American Visions Award

On Sunday, January 29, several AAHS students were recognized for their artistic accomplishment at the Scholastic Art Award Ceremony at the Clemens Center in Elmira, NY.  For most of the awards given, student had prior notice, but our one "Oscar moment" is the announcement of the American Visions awards.  Of the 120 artworks recognized, jurors choose 5 Best in Show nominees.  Athens student Erica Hutchison was one of these students.  Her painting The Eye of a Mother will go on to be judged at the national level in two categories Painting and American Visions.  It will compete against the nominees from 100 state affiliates across the country.  Congratulations, Erica!
