High school artists head to state competitio STAFF REPORTS Fifteen local high school students have qualified for state competition at the April 9-10 State Visual Arts Scholastic Event (VASE), to be held on the University of Houston-Clear Lake City campus. Eight Hays High School students and seven from Lehman High represent the outstanding showing at the recent San Marcos quali- fying meet. Headed to the prestigious state meet from Hays High are Gaby Buentello, Hillary Gee, Eric Leija, Jeff Men- doza, Mariah Meza, Sarah Yager, Caragh Givens and Helena Wessely. Lehman High will be represented by Jared Rodriguez, Josh Mar- tinez, Christian Guajardo, Abigail Schwandt, Sarah Bee, Devon Smith and Amanda Garcia. Both the Hays and Leh- man contingents at the two-tiered San Marcos meet received a slew of Regional "4's," the competition's "gold" standard. Those were then judged in an Area round to determine those entries that would advance to state. Some art students scored 4's in multiple cat- egories. Lehman Art teacher Debra Flynn and Hays Highs Mar- nie Hart had the lion's share of high-scoring students and both expressed pride in the outstanding showing. This was a common senti- ment among art teachers that included Jeanne Stewart at Lehman and Dan Nien- dorff, Starr Cruz and Diana Debrock at Hays. "It shows that our students are confident and ready to defend and represent their work with a judge," Flynn said, adding, "It also shows that our students are taking that extra step to finish work in a way that is exceptional and impressive."

Austin Community College enrolls eligible high school students through the Early College Start program, allowing them to take up to two col- lege courses per semester while in high school. ECS students who take ACC courses at an ACC campus will be charged a $40 per course fee. Many courses scheduled on the Hays CISD high school campuses in the fall and spring offer flee tuition. High school students taking the ACC courses at area high schools during the school day are only re- sponsible for the textbook expenses and fees. There are many registra- tion steps for enrollment in ACC courses while in high school. Students are asked to see their counselors for assistance. Marquis Wfl- lianas is the Hays CISD ACC representative. He travels to the high schools and assists the students with Early College Start program Advising and Registration procedures. Having students utilize the ECS program can be very beneficial for families. Numerous college credits maybe earned while still in high school for an extremely reduced rate.
