Four Lenexa area high schoolers were recently honored for their artistic talents through the Lenexa Arts Council scholarship program.

The Arts Council awarded $3,000 in scholarships in visual, performing and literary arts to Lenexa area high school seniors to use toward their college educations. A committee of art professionals reviewed all applications and selected the winners.

This year’s winners are:

  • Visual art – $1,000 – Gabriella Herrera, Shawnee Mission Northwest High School

  • Performing art – first place – $1,000 – Catherine Steinacker, Shawnee Mission Northwest High School

  • Performing art – second place – $500 – Maggie Yonker, Shawnee Mission Northwest High School

  • Literary art – $500 – Elizabeth Joseph, Mill Valley High School

2019 marks the last year of the Arts Council scholarship program. In future years, funding will be used to implement new art-related programs that reach a larger audience in the community.
