The Bremond ISD program continues to win accolades across the state and the nation. Recently, young artist Katherine Hull of BISD earned “overall winner” in the annual Congressional Art Contest competition sponsored by the U. S. House of Representatives, our local congressman Bill Flores, and Baylor University, contest host.

Hull received her award from Flores with congratulations from Flores and staff, Baylor President Kenneth Starr and wife Alice, and her own entourage including parents Naomi and Vanoy Hull, art teacher Lisa Miller, BISD Superintendent Daryl Stuart and wife, and Bremond School Board member David Kujawa.

Hull’s painting, “Daddy’s Violin,” will be hung in the U.S. capital in Washington for an entire year, along with the works of winners from other congressional districts. It’s striking and will probably stand out wherever it is hung.

Katherine also won a state-wide art contest and will be congratulated by Texas Governor Rick Perry next month before attending the Washington D.C. reception for all congressional district winners.

BISD and Congressman Flores’ staff wish to thank Baylor University and especially the staff of the Baylor Martin Museum of Art, the Baylor Art Angels, and Alice Starr for managing both the contest and the reception for Hull and the other winners—including several “honorable mention” winners from Bremond.
