Art Teacher, Stacia Pitt, returned from Nassau on February 14 with two of her students, Mario Murphy and Jason Louis holding trophies received for Abaco Central High School’s first place in the 16th Visual Arts Exhibition, Family Islands category.
The trio who represented Abaco Central High School and their art class, attended the award ceremony that took place on February 13 at the Mall of Marathon, New Providence.
