JHHS Senior Jordan Moorehouse awarded Art Leadership Scholarship

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Jackson Hole High School senior Jordan Moorehouse is the recipient of the Art Leadership Scholarship in Honor of the Memory of Dick Jennings. The $2,500 award is given annually by the National Museum of Wildlife Art to a Teton County high school senior with a passion for fine art who uses her or his artistic talent to give back to others. “Dick Jennings was a dedicated Museum board member whose memory invites us to reflect on how important it is to care about the community you live in and give of yourself to the causes you feel passionate about,” says Jane Lavino, the Museum’s Sugden Family Curator of Education & Exhibits. “Jordan Moorehouse, our 2016 scholarship winner, embodies these ideals with her passion for drawing, painting, photography, and sculpture. She plans to study art at Colorado Mesa University and eventually become a high school art teacher.” [image: Inline image 1] Lavino presented the award to Moorehouse on April 25 as part of Scholarship Night at Jackson Hole High School.
