Of these, 16 seniors- including Ty- have been nominated for the U.S. Army Player of the Year Award, the most distinguished individual award in high school football.

On December 13th, the Woodbury will open its first ever student-led exhibition featuring local artists from Provo High. The show presents various ways that a human brain handles various artistic constraints- in this case, a mother color of yellow ochre. Each artist will be challenged to mix yellow ochre with every other color in their painting, which will provide an interestingly similar, yet diverse set of works.
As students, we were challenged to step into real life roles, and required to work on our specific role independently, while still being collaborative, in order to create works of art that tie back to our exhibition’s thesis statement.
We welcome all to visit our opening reception at the Woodbury Museum Of Art (575 E. University Pkwy.) The reception will be held December 13th from 6-8 P.M.
