Oakleaf High senior wins Courtenay Hunt Scholarship

Posted

ORANGE PARK – Kelly Ventura, a senior art student at Oakleaf High, won the Courtenay Hunt Scholarship for the Visual Fine Arts and Fine Arts Education.

The $1,000 award is presented annually by the Art Guild of Orange Park to a Clay County senior who is an outstanding artist and student and is accepted to a college where they will pursue a degree in the Visual Fine Arts or Art Education.

Ventura presented a portfolio of 10 or more works that showed a very creative mind able to use materials on hand to produce abstract paintings and sculptures. Her art teacher, Ms. Kezia Laberis, said Ventura “is a student who strives to reach perfection and works harder than all others to reach her true potential…”

In addition to Kelly, there were two runners-up from Carrie Keene’s art class at Orange Park High – Skye Rigdon and Cameron Davis. They both received checks for $50. All three students also have been awarded Art Guild of Orange Park memberships for the 2021-2022 season.
