Two high school students, Kolton Haverland and Heather Wilcox, were honored Tuesday, May 25th for their superior achievement in winning a logo design contest for the San Saba Museum.
The Museum recently decided to update its logo and figured one of the best ways to do that was by involving some youthful talent. John Cook, the Museum President, worked with High School Principal Harper Stewart and Art Teacher, Mrs. Wentworth, to organize the competition.
The final product was a fusion of the two submissions. Kolton’s artwork focused on the log cabin (which is housed within the museum) while Heather’s entry provided the artistic framework for Kolton’s drawing of the log cabin. Lynn Blankenship, one of the museum’s volunteers, produced the final design based on Kolton’s and Heather’s ideas.
Both Kolton and Heather are freshmen at San Saba High School.
Museum President John Cook said, "We were extremely happy to have high school students involved in this community project. The students were able to learn about the museum while using their artistic talents in a practical and important way." Stan Weik, San Saba City Manager, attended the presentation and told the students that even though they’re still young, their participation in this contest "made a permanent mark on San Saba’s history."
The students received a certificate and a $75 cash award from the Museum Foundation.
