Lake Highlands Elementary students were honored on Aug. 3 at the State Reflections PTA Ceremony.

Oliver Berger won an honorable mention for film, and Anna Catherine Brindley won an award of excellence for visual arts. The ceremony was held at the University of North Texas.

Reflections is an arts program that has been used in schools across the country for 50 years. Through the efforts of local PTAs, millions of students have found a creative outlet in the areas of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts.

With positive recognition as the focus of the program, rather than competition, students of all ages and abilities can experience the benefits of creative expression and help in finding their own voice in telling their unique story.

Started in 1969, Reflections has grown to be one of the largest nationwide programs of its kind, with more than 200,000 students participating annually. You can see the 2018-2019 Reflections Gallery here.
