Twice a year, Williston presents certain individuals with the Working Artist Award for their achievements in the arts on campus. The awards this year went to Caleb Stern ’19, Robby Hill ’19, Ainsley Holman ’18, Caroline Channel ’18, Kenneth Wang ’20, Fuka Iwama ’18, and Ha Phan ’19.

Ms. Hume, the Head of the Art Department, said she felt the awards were very important in recognizing exceptional talent.

“These awards are for students who are passionate about art and spend more time than is required,” she said. She added, “these students are leaders on campus and are able to mentor other students through their success.”

Robby and Caleb shared an award for acting. They both played key roles in our newest production on campus, a musical by the name of Into the Woods (a mash up of fairy tales including, Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Little Red Riding Hood). Robby was cast as the Narrator and Mysterious Man while Caleb played Jack from the Jack and the Beanstalk storyline.

Robby stated, “I always loved to act, so back in December I decided to audition for the spring musical.” He also thanked his cast and crew as well, “Nothing I do would even be remotely possible without such an incredible cast and crew alongside me.”

Kenneth won his award for visual art. He created a “Tree Gnome,” inspired by woodland creatures and hollowed-out trees. Kenneth mentioned that he was, “extremely surprised he won the award.” His gnome won a design contest at local indoor park Mill 180, an achievement that netted Kenneth $250 and permanent recognition at the popular park.

Ha won her award for her active participation in theatre tech and exceptional performances through her passion for singing.

Fuka won her award in the painting category. Mr. Roe, another art teacher on campus, mentioned that these awards were for “students who exceed the expectations in class.” He also added that Fuka, who has won awards in the past, is one of these students. “She cranks out paintings that are amazing, and whenever I ask how she is doing with her work she laughs and says she’s fine.”
