Cushing Artists Earn National Awards

Over break, we received the exciting news that Simba Xu '19 won a Gold Medal and Mya Yang '20 won a Silver Medal in the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards!

Simba Xu’s Gold Medal is one of the highest awards to be earned in this national competition— an honor that only eight students in the nation received. He will be awarded $10,000 in scholarship money to the college of his choice. Simba will also be attending an award ceremony in New York City for fellow portfolio award winners in June. Out of the eight art pieces he submitted, three selected works will be on display in a traveling exhibit for Scholastic over the next two years.

Congratulations to these talented artists!
