Students excel at conference art show

Princeton High School art students of Susan Enright and Lori Johnstone took their creations on the road Friday to the Granite Ridge Conference Art Show at Foley High School.

Princeton artists brought home four first-place all-conference titles. Seven artists earned “excellent” honors while another three artists earned “superior” ratings.

Princeton’s Lexi Haavisto’s painting of Christina Aguilera not only won excellent honors, but it was the winner of the prestigious “People’s Choice Award, as well. That award was chosen not by the judges, but by the art students of the Granite Ridge Conference.
