Rodeo Art Show “kicks up dust” at North Shore HS

THE STAGE OF NORTH SHORE HIGH SCHOOL WAS FILLED WITH RODEO ART.

THE STAGE OF NORTH SHORE HIGH SCHOOL WAS FILLED WITH RODEO ART.

Seven winners will exhibit at HLS&R

The Galena Park Independent School District’s annual Rodeo Art Show was held on Thursday, January 15 in the North Shore Senior High School auditorium. This event featured artwork by approximately 450 students in grades K-12 from each elementary, middle and high school campus in the district.

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo School Art Committee judged the 2015 GPISD Rodeo Art Show and bestowed special recognition on seven pieces of artwork selected as “Best in Show” and “Gold Medal” winners. Those winning pieces will be prominently displayed in the HLSR’s Hayloft Gallery at the Reliant Center throughout the duration of this year’s Rodeo. Approximately 50 pieces of art, as determined by the final round of Grand Prix judging, will be auctioned. Every participant in the School Art Program is a winner, receiving a certificate of merit signed by the Show president, and a blue, red or white ribbon for achievement.

This year’s elementary “Best of Show” winner was Houston Towner (Havard Elementary) and the “Gold Medal” winner was Trinity Garcia (MacArthur Elementary). The middle school “Best of Show” winner was Marlene Santaloya (Woodland Acres Middle School) and the “Gold Medal” winner was Daniel Medina (North Shore Middle School). The high school “Best of Show” award went to Maria Rivera (North Shore Sr. High School). High school “Gold Medal” awards went to Adam Garcia (North Shore Sr. High School) and Zulma Mejia (North Shore Sr. High School).

Congratulations to all of this year’s Rodeo Art Show participants and winners.

San Jacinto College – North Campus pioneer dies at 95

Proctor Woodward Brightwell

Proctor Woodward Brightwell

Our dear dad, Proctor Woodward Brightwell, passed away on January 13, 2015.

At 95 he truly embodied the “greatest generation.” He was the youngest of 5 children and was employed for 48 years by the same company in the gas pipeline business. He served 10 years on the San Jacinto Junior College Board of Trustees and was instrumental in the start of the North Campus. His commitment to technical education was honored by the naming of the Proctor Brightwell Technical Vocational Building – the second building to be built on the North Campus.

An inveterate traveler, by age 80 he had been to all 7 continents. For over a decade he lived and traveled in his RV for 6 months every year, in addition to enjoying many cruises.

He leaves a wonderful legacy for his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. We were blessed to call him our father and “Grampie,” to have him for as many years as we did, and to know in so many tangible ways his love and support for us. He is survived by daughters Emily and Eileen, three grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.
