Two Kilgore College students won transfer art scholarships to The University of Texas at Tyler this week in the Professional Practices Symposium and Art competition.
Tyler Meyers, of Gladewater, was awarded a $2,000 scholarship, and Triston Lister, of Longview, was awarded a $1,000 scholarship.
More than 50 entries from six community college art departments competed in the contest with more than 150 people attending the event.
The event featured presentations from professional artists including KC art instructors Coy Lothrop and Larry Kitchen.
This annual event helps community college art majors seeking to transfer to a university in pursuit of a bachelor’s or master’s degree in art history.
