MIAMI HERALD SILVER KNIGHT AWARD:
Awarded to Alana Barrett for excellence in the arts and art related community service.
*Excerpt from the Miami Herald:*
Cypress Bay High School
"When the Art Honor Society and Cypress Bay baseball and softball teams decided to make their fields a more positive space for athletes, visitors and students, Alana Barrett led the effort by helping design and paint murals on the dugout walls.
She painted after school and Saturdays, sometimes alone and often in scorching heat and rain. Some mornings she would find the murals defaced, but her love of public art prevailed. Alana received the Arts for the Future Award/Scholarship in Visual Arts for the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. She is an Advanced Placement and Honors student and in the National Art Honor Society."
