Talent and depth have carried the St. Johnsbury Academy girls to four straight Division I track and field titles. For the past two days at the University of Vermont, the Hilltoppers reminded the state they have no plans to leave their perch.
Pitching, it's often said, is the name of the game. After the playoff run that resulted in St. Johnsbury Academy's annexing the Division I title Saturday night at Centennial Field, it's hard to argue otherwise.
Last year St. Johnsbury Academy won its first Division I girls outdoor track title by five points over Essex. This year the winning margin was 34.5 points — again over Essex.
St. Johnsbury Academy Fine Arts students were honored at the Vermont state house in Montpelier recently for awards they won in the 35th annual Congressional Art Competition. Of the five students who submitted art, two won prizes: Senior Katherine Gray won the Judges' Choice Award for her print "Deer Me, A Self Portrait" and Junior Qinbin "Eden" Liu won Third Place for his self portrait in oil. The other students who submitted their work were Seniors Jasmine Wood, Desiree Taylor, and Chairin Yoon. Vermont Congressman Peter Welch attended the ceremony and congratulated the students.
The Fine Arts department will host a year-end Gala from Monday, May 23 through Friday, June 3rd. The building will be brimming with student artwork and the lobby exhibit will be curated by our own Maria Navas. Please join us for our opening night, Thursday May 26, featuring the Performing Arts. Dance classes will perform 3:15 to 3:45; acting classes from 3:45-4:30; Hilltones from 4:40-5:00; and filmmaking classes wrapping the evening up in the Stuart Black Box Theater from 5:00-6:00 p.m. The event is open to the public and all are welcome.
Ten St. Johnsbury Academy juniors have been selected to represent the school at this summer's Boys and Girls State gatherings. The students were chosen because of their interest in government and politics and demonstration of leadership skills inside and outside of the classroom.
