March is National Youth Art Month

Fourteen Humble ISD student artists were recognized at the March Board of Trustees meeting for their award-winning artwork in both the Houston Livestock and Rodeo Art Contest, as well as the State Youth Art Month Exhibit, where only 100 pieces are chosen from school district entries across the state. Out of 8 submitted from Humble ISD, we have 5 selected and are on display at the State Capitol and Bob Bullock Museum in Austin.

In addition, KPHS Senior Jordan Adkins' art work "Floof and Poof" was one of 10 pieces chosen by Texas First Lady Cecilia Abbott to hang in the Governor's Gallery for the next year. This is a very big honor for her and our district! Her picture is the lady with the large amount of hair.

  • Jordan Adkins - KPHS - Teacher Melanie Hunt
  • Hogan Anderson - GTE- Teacher Heather Burdette
  • Meredith Charboneau - WCE - Teacher Lynn Bennett
