The 23rd annual Tri-County Art Show presented by the Twin Valley Rotary Club was held at the Classic Auto Mall in Morgantown on April 13 to 15. The show presented the work of 25 area artists and 20 Twin Valley High School students.

Each year the Twin Valley Rotary Club awards $250 in cash prizes to the top four student entries. This year’s student winners were: first place, Gabrielle Calhoun; second place, Nicole Goebel; third place, Aubrey Zegstroo; fourth place, Kristi Newswanger.

The cash awards and certificates were presented to the students at the weekly breakfast meeting of the club on May 2. The students brought their prize-winning pieces and explained the process that created the works. Twin Valley High School Superintendent Dr. Robert Pleis complimented the art teachers and students on the excellence of the art department and the students’ art work.

The club would like to thank teachers Addy McKerns and Heather McCord in the Twin Valley High School Art Department for their efforts in providing the opportunity for the students to display their work.
