Nennstiel, SFA art awards announced at S-GI
Dr. William Nennstiel and his wife Mary created the Nennstiel Purchase Award in 1992. William Nennstiel was superintendent of S-GI from 1977 – 1995.
Each year, a $125 award purchases a student’s work of art that was selected by the district’s art staff. The award also includes the purchase of a frame and name plaque. The painting becomes a part of the school district’s permanent collection that is rotated yearly throughout the district buildings until it returns to the high school, where it is permanently exhibited in the library media center.
The Springville Faculty Association Award went to Malinda Rosenswie for a digital photograph and painting showing a grandmother and child. Her work will also become part of S-GI’s permanent art collection.
Houseman added that an art teacher’s merit award was presented this year on the occasion of the Concord Bicentennial. Sarah Owen won the award for her digital photographs showing old postcards and modern scenes of Springville.
