Senior Samantha Baxter wins honorable mention award for her painting of the Millpond located downtown Fenton. The competition was held by Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University.

Hearing her name being called senior Samantha Baxter walks up to receive her honorable mention award from the Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University. On March 3 Baxter attended an award ceremony where she along with other students were awarded for their art work.

“I found out about this competition through Fenton alumni Erin Tesner,” Baxter said. “Her parents go to the same church as me and they let me know about it.”

Baxter submitted two paintings to the competition both of which represented Fenton. She placed honorable mention out of 2000 submissions.

“I sent in two of my paintings,” Baxter said. “They were both of downtown Fenton, one was the pond and the other was the river they were my favorite paintings. Getting the award was cool since they said that there were over 2000 entries.”

In the future Baxter plans to attend Lawrence Technical University for architecture and design, and uses her award to motivate her to keep creating.
