Jaxen Garcia, Class of 2024, won an honorable mention in the 2023 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. This is a nationwide competition presented by the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers. Their mission is to identify students with a passion and skill for writing and art and show their incredible work through the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards each year. The Awards allow students to receive recognition, publication, and scholarships. Jaxen submitted her "Grim" paper with the encouragement of upper school English teacher Michelle Fleming. Jaxen's "Grim," tells the tale of five individuals and their deaths as witnessed by the Grim Reaper. "I wanted to show how someone outside the human eye would perceive death," says Jaxen. Congratulations, Jaxen!
