Senior Kayle Morin Named TAPPS Fine Arts Student of the Year
Kayle Morin, BCS senior, will be honored as the 2011-12 Division 3A Female Fine Arts Student of the Year by the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools, Edd Burleson, director, announced on Monday May 14.
She will receive a plaque and the $500 Russell Scholarship at the TAPPS awards banquet in San Antonio on June 8.
The award recognizes excellence across multiple TAPPS fine arts events. Kayle placed in three state-level TAPPS meets, including art, vocal music, and academic/speech, and was a state champion in art and vocal music.
In art, Kayle won “outstanding artist overall” at district and placed first in state in print making, in addition to other district and state awards. In vocal music, Kayle received top ratings at state in solo, and as part of the TAPPS state champion choir, she took top ratings in two small ensembles, three sacred ensembles, and two sight reading competitions. She qualified for state in solo acting, where she placed sixth.
“Kayle is an artist in every sense of the word, whether drawing, singing, or acting on stage,” Missy Weaver, choir director, wrote in her nomination of Kayle. “She has been an integral part of our departments for the past four years.”
She has been accepted to Lubbock Christian University on a music scholarship.
