Jacqueline Tyler and Meredith Gill-Williams (art teachers) of G. Ray Bodley High School selected the recipients of the two $100 scholarships.

The 2015 Art Award is awarded to Chlarissia Crast and the 2015 Photography Award is awarded to Anita Savich.

Crast is a senior student who plans to pursue graphic design after she graduates from G. Ray Bodley High School.

What is striking about Chlarissia is that she never gives up.  Every artist knows there are times when your work does not come out as planned, or your tools don’t work as smoothly as you might like them to.

When these snags occur in Crast’s art making process, she is not afraid to ask for help or advice.

She takes constructive criticism well because she sincerely desires to be better at what she loves to do.

As every art teacher knows, these are very important qualities for a successful artist to possess.

For this reason, Crast is being awarded the Fulton Art Association Scholarship in Art.

She is the daughter of Daniel and Sheryl Crast.

Savich is a senior at GRB and has been a Fulton student all her life.

She is one of 11 children that will graduate from GRB and do amazing things at whatever aspirations she plans on pursuing.

She puts countless hours into everything and never accepts subpar on anything.

She is kind, compassionate, and very artistically talented.

She has done Studio in Art, Ceramics, Photography, and many music courses.

She has a well-rounded love for the arts and above average skill.

When she isn’t found helping others or working her part time job, she is dedicated to her loving family.

It is all of these characteristics and many more that make her deserving of the Fulton Art Association’s Photography award.

Savich is the daughter of Mikhail and Yekaterina Savich.
