Maranatha High School: Creative Maranatha Students Receive Recognition

Kristiane Stubb's entry

Two of Maranatha’s visual arts students won awards in the Los Angeles County Office of Education Visual Arts Contest. Kristiane Stubbs `13 received 4th place for her original art submission, a headshot of 60’s icon Twiggy, which she created using a linoleum block. Taylor Bowman `12 took 5th place for her photograph titled “Gold in the Fog”, which was part of a photo series she did on the Golden Gate Bridge. This was Maranatha’s first time participating in the LACOE Art Contest, which includes entries from schools throughout Los Angeles.

Kathryn Smith with her Gold Medal

The school also wishes to congratulate Kathryn Smith `12 – a finalist in the International World Poetry Movement Contest (Amateur Division). Submissions from all over the world were narrowed down to just 116 finalist. As a finalist Kathryn received a gold medal and her poetry will be published in a compilation called, “Stars in our Hearts.” Kathryn plans to continue pursuing her love for the written word by studying to become an English teacher and hopes someday to be a novelist.
