Isabella Tanksley

Macie Daughtry

Two Lufkin Middle School students were recognized for not only their artistic ability, but their interpretation of “The Power of Community” in the TSTA 2022 Young Artist Contest. Isabella Tanksley won 2nd place in the contest and Macie Daughtry won 3rd place. The contest is an annual project for the Texas State Teachers Association where the 2022 TSTA House of Delegates vote on the winning art pieces.

The winning artwork was published in the magazine TSTA Advocate and put on the TSTA website click here. The artwork will be displayed at the TSTA headquarters in Austin for a year, and winners received a cash prize.

In a letter sent to the winners from the TSTA office, the committee thanked the students for sharing their enthusiasm for their school and on how they perceived the “power of community”.
