Orangefield art students did an outstanding job at their Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Art Show this past weekend. Taking top honors of Best of Show was senior, Tierney Rice. Receiving gold medals were sophomore, Sable Reynolds and senior, Austin Flores. Two additional Special Merit Awards were presented to senior, Adam Winfree, and sophomore, Kinley McFarlin. All of these pieces of artwork are now on display at the rodeo.

In addition, the seniors received scholarship information and underclassmen were given applications to the Glassell School of Art and the Cowboy Art School in Kerrville.

There were a number of other top honors as well. Finalists are as follows: Bettye Crochet, Krista Wheeler, Morgan Isaacs, Alyssa Kelley, John Ingram, Blaine Milstead and Haley Abshire. In addition to these recipients, there were a large number of blue ribbons and quite a few red ribbons as well.

Judge Mike Jones made the statement that the high school show was the strongest group of artwork that he had judged in four weeks (including eight others that day.) The Orangefield High School art teacher is Ms. Sherry Windham.
