NSMS 8th grader wins BEST OF SHOW!

Several seventh and eighth grade North Shore Middle School students participated in this year's Galena Park ISD Rodeo Art Show. Our own Cadance Smith, an eighth grader, won Best of Show for middle school for her color pencil drawing of a hen.
Her artwork and many others will be displayed for thousands to see at this year's Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo at NRG Arena and she will be formally recognized there as an award-winning HLSR artist!
She also has the opportunity to receive a scholarship from the Houston Museum of Fine Arts Glassel School of Art over the summer.
