Carissa Hill earns ‘Best of Show’ at MCC high school art exhibition

    Three students from Chase County Schools earned awards at the annual McCook Community College (MCC) art contest.
    Topping the honors was junior Carissa Hill, whose “Horse” scratchboard piece took the Best of Show award by the judge.
    Her piece was picked the best of nearly 300 pieces of art entered by high school students from 15 area schools.
    Another horse-theme painting by Hill, showing an outstretch hand feeding the horse, also was the Judge’s Choice selection in the painting division.
    Hill said she loves horses and the family owns one they enjoy at their rural home south of Imperial. She has future hopes of being involved in the veterinary profession.
    Two other Chase County students did well, too, in the art show competition. Winners were announced  Friday at MCC after a week and a half on display.
    Landis Beverly, a senior, earned second in digital photography for his self-portrait image titled, “Me, Myself and I = 6 Landises.”
    Mallie McNair took third in drawing with her pencil self-portrait. The junior’s piece is of herself running on the track.
