Meet the winner of the 2017 Euclid Art Association Margret E. Hain Memorial Art Scholarship − Euclid High School Senior, Jermaine Hawkins.  Senior Awards Night at Euclid High School was Thursday evening May 11.  Ellen Howard presented the EAA Scholarship award to Jermaine.  This year EAA developed a new procedure for selecting the scholarship winner.  EHS Senior art students were asked to submit their entries, maximum 3, to along with a short artist statement.  We had six entries to review.  The selection committee, Rozenia Cunningham and Ellen Howard, both agreed on Jermaine as the clear cut winner.

Jermaine says, “I grew up in a home where I was surrounded by art.  My father used to draw and he was talented.  So when I was growing up I would sit around for hours and draw.  I have chosen to major in graphic design because I want to have a career that reflects my personality as well as sustains a living.  Even though my career choice is not a fine artist, I plan on creating and exhibiting work throughout my life.”
