Local students recognized


April 12, 2018

The Escambia County Public Schools Foundation will recognize this year’s Mira Awards and highlight the “best of the best” graduating seniors in the Creative Arts at 6 p.m., Thursday, April 12 at Booker T. Washington High School, Theodore B.D. Bennett Auditorium.

Students from Northview and other Escambia County High Schools will receive a personalized medallion and Congressional certificate. The ceremony is sponsored by Firehouse Subs (9 Mile Road), Navy Federal, and the Bear Family Foundation.

From Northview High School, students to be recognized are: Anna Belle Barberree for Technology; Camilla Windham for Music/Theater: Clayton Findley for Band; Hannah Mascaro and Tara Windham for Art; Sara Perritt for Writing; Cody Alan Kite for Manufacturing and Tristen David Segers for Welding.

The MIRA awards program was started in 1987 by a group of Tate High School teachers who wanted to recognize students who excelled in the arts.

This special group of teachers decided that the ceremony would be named MIRA, after the brightest star in the constellation Cetus. This name symbolizes these honored students’ wonderful gifts of imagination and creative talents that designate them as “bright and amazing stars.” Their remarkable accomplishments shine for all of us to see, read, hear, and enjoy.
