Straughn Middle School Student Receives Honors

Brent Dorman, a seventh grader at Straughn Middle School, was recognized at the State Superintendent’s Visual Arts Awards Luncheon February 11, 2010. Brent received an award certificate for Honorable Mention in Division 7-8, Category II in the State Superintendent’s Visual Arts Exhibit and a State Board of Education Resolution for his photograph titled Water lily. Brent’s piece, along with several other pieces contributed by students from Alabama schools, is on exhibit in the Old Supreme Court Library in the Alabama State Capital. Brent took this photograph at the Straughn Middle School’s coy pond last the fall. He is the son of Rodney and Wendy James and the Grandson of Henry and Elaine Patterson.
