Houston Christian High School students won some valuable keys this semester after the Scholastic Art & Writing competition announced the results of its fall competition.

Seven Houston Christian art students earned a grand total of seven Gold Keys, four Silver Keys, and five Honorable Mentions for their pieces. A Gold Key is the highest award a student can receive at the regional level. Junior Destiny Duan received the one Silver Key and seven Gold Keys, which earned her a spot to compete in the national competition this spring.

The Scholastic competition is produced by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, which works to promote art and writing among students nationwide.

“I’m so proud of all my students who have shown tremendous growth this year. This is what Houston Christian is about -- allowing students to find their passions and fulfill their life-callings.” said art teacher Kara Whiting.

"Houston Christian was the perfect fit for me to develop as a student and a leader over my four years here. The teachers and students helped foster an environment that promotes fellowship and support. My teachers genuinely cared for me and went the extra mile to help me succeed. My time at Houston Christian has thoroughly prepared me for college while offering the experiences and opportunities I wanted in high school."

"My most memorable experience at HC was being part of the robotics team in its first year. Despite having no prior experience, our team won five awards and advanced to regionals. This experience demonstrated the dedication my fellow students have to their work and the eagerness they have to give their all in everything they do."

"Houston Christian has provided me with so many opportunities to get involved. Through my involvement with Fine Arts over the past four years, I have been able to not only make great memories, but make an amazing group of friends. By being a part of Fine Arts, particularly choir and theatre, I have been able to experience the amazing sense of community HC has to offer."
