Eleven students were recognized as winners for the Superintendent’s Choice Awards at the May 9 Board of Education meeting. Students ranging from 2nd to 12th grade across the county were honored for their artwork.

The awards were co-sponsored by Cleveland County Schools and the Cleveland County Arts Council. Dr. Stephen Fisher, Superintendent of CCS, was told to select one high school winner, a middle school winner, and several elementary school winners. Dr. Fisher chose two high school winners. 

“I tell him to select the work that appeals to him,” said Shearra Miller, president of the Cleveland County Arts Council.

Each selected piece was part of the Annual Cleveland County Student Art Competition. The pieces were on exhibit at the Arts Council from April 21-May 12. More than 700 students entered the overall competition this year.

"I am thankful for the partnership with the Cleveland County Arts Council, providing me the opportunity to see and experience such talented creations by our students," Dr. Fisher said. "These creative students deserve every ounce of credit, and I am honored to have the opportunity to view their work."

The 11 winners are listed below:
