PCHS students recognized for artistry

Three Pocahontas County High School students won awards last weekend at the GFWC West Virginia State Convention at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs. The Greater Federation of Woman’s Clubs West Virginia, at its annual State Convention, hosted the contest for student art by West Virginia’s ninth through 12th graders. The Marlinton Woman’s Club sponsored seven PCHS art students, three of whom won awards.

PCHS senior Justice Wolfe second place in the Acrylic or Oil category for her pastoral painting of sheep grazing, which she titled, “Miss Wilfong’s Farm.” “I only put in three sheep,” Wolfe said. “They were really hard for me to do, but I wanted to challenge myself.”
PCHS sophomore Ryleigh Vaughan won second place in the Scratchboard category for her picture titled, “Moon Over the Water.” In discussing her work, Vaughan said she knew the white full moon would really pop with the scratchboard technique.
PCHS senior Dylan Workman’s beautiful ceramic bowl is completely different on the inside from the outside. It won first place in Hand Built or Wheel Thrown Ceramics. “I threw it myself and painted and glazed it myself,” Workman said. “I wanted to make it really colorful.” L.D. Bennett photos
