Students Paving the Way

Mariah Ona, News Editor

GCHS National Art Honors Art Society just launched this year. The club is not just another Art Club, it takes Art to college prep level. NAHS can help build portfolios and can open the door for students to obtain national recognition, receive awards, and become eligible for scholarships. NAHS is doing amazing for the first year. With exactly 52 members the group will hold events throughout the school year to raise money. If someone is not good at art that is okay. All you need is the “passion for it”, said Natasha Bivins. “As long as the requirements are met”. Requirements being: enrollment in one art class a semester, a “B” average in any normal class having to do with the arts, and completion of a set number of service hours. NAHS adviser, Jeffrey Austin, who couldn’t be more proud of the student-led club quoted,“ the students made this club happen not me. I’m just here to help out.” Austin pushed this idea for years and it is finally a reality. Congratulations to NAHS, we can’t wait to see all the amazing things you will do.
