Cutline: American Warrior by Summer Creek High School junior Savannah Le, who is taught by Sandra Newton, won High School Best of Show in the Humble ISD Rodeo Art Show. The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, which runs March 4-23, will feature artwork by seven Humble ISD students. The students work was selected from more than 500 pieces at the Humble ISD Rodeo Art Show for display and additional judging in Houston through the School Art Program. Receiving Best of Show honors and selected to advance were Summer Creek High School junior Savannah Le, taught by Sandra Newton, for American Warrior; Creekwood Middle School eighth-grader Tessa Dabney, taught by Allison Gardner, for Waiting for the Sunset; and Bear Branch Elementary School fifth-grader Derrick Schlosser, taught by Anne Lynch, for Dawns Barn. Receiving Gold Medal Awards and selected to advance were Summer Creek High School junior Minbio Yoo, taught by Sandra Newton, for Sharon; Humble High School freshman Monique Sanchez, taught by Victoria Parker, for Out in the West; Riverwood Middle School eighth-grader Carly Stroud, taught by Darla Hoover, for Indian Princess; and Pine Forest Elementary third-grader Michael Norwood, taught by Cathy Ransdell, for Cow Moo-Michael. Since 1965, the School Art Program has inspired students in Pre-K through 12th grade to create original art reflecting Western history, culture or heritage. Approximately 145 different school districts, including private and parochial schools, participate in the program. Work from participating school districts is selected to advance to Houston. Approximately 50 works of art at the Houston show will be chosen for auction, which annually brings in more than $1 million in sales. Proceeds benefit student scholarships.
