HHS students take top honors in Fourth Cogressional District Art Competition

HALEYVILLE - Four Haleyville High School students took top honors recently in the Fourth Congressional District Art Competition, hosted by U.S. Congressman Robert Aderholt. 

The award ceremony took place at the Evelyn Burrow Center for the Fine and Performing Arts at Wallace State Community College in Hanceville April 17.  In the prints category, Nicholas Church came in first place while Michael Atkins came in second place.  In the computer graphics category, River Liverett came in first place and Halia Salazar came in second place. 

Church and Liverett each were awarded substantial scholarships to Wallace State for their winning entries.

"I am always amazed at the talent of our students in the 4th District,” said Aderholt. “We had 147 entries this year and every single one of them is better than anything I could attempt to do. We also had 25 schools participate, which is a record.

“I am so thankful to Wallace State President Dr. Vicki Karolewics for offering our winners scholarships this year. These scholarships can be used in any field of study at Wallace and can even be used for online classes. These scholarships will no doubt change lives for the better,"  Aderholt added.
