Groesbeck High School students did not fail to impress Monday evening, April 23 with their first-ever Photography and Art Exhibit.  INFOCUS was hosted at the GHS auditorium with culinary delights on deck, music flowing throughout and galleries of students’ work neatly displayed all along the ground floor walls.

GHS principal, Keri Allen, commended the students and the group of teachers who worked tirelessly to make the event possible. “I had the idea one night and the next morning presented it to some of my staff and they ran with it,” she exclaimed. “It’s such a great way to display our student's talents. I hope this can become something we can do annually and with the turnout we’ve had tonight, I don’t see why that can’t be a reality.”

Throughout the auditorium, you could view photography pieces, art creations and enjoy culinary delights, all created by GHS students. The photography students, under the leadership of instructor Shannon Casto, and the art students, under the leadership of instructor Desirae Settlemeyer displayed their work for the public. Patrons were treated to a music ensemble played by the GHS Band, under the leadership of band director Collin Anderson, and culinary delights courtesy of the culinary arts class, under the leadership of Sharon Wilson and with the assistance of Mary Wurts and Darla Wurtz.

The INFOCUS Photography and Art Exhibit event programs were created and printed entirely by the GHS Print Shop, under the instruction of Nancy Sutton. An interesting aspect to note of the programs and event flyers that have been circulating around is the collage-design cover of student work, a nice little preview of GHS artistic talent.  The Print Shop also printed all the invitations, flyers and photos for the event.
