Pleasant Grove High School Senior Amelia Bradley won a National Gold Medal for Scholastic Art and Writing and will be receiving the award at Carnegie Hall on June 6, 2019. Bradley first won a Scholastic Gold Medal in the western division to advance to the national competition; her work was then selected among over 200,000 works for this honor.
Under the direction of high school art instructors Nicole Brisco and Melissa Manning, her artwork also received recognition from the National Art Educators Association. Bradley’s piece “Unadorned” traveled to the National Exhibit in New Jersey and another piece titled“Introspective” earned recognition for Texas Youth Art Month where Texas youth artwork was displayed in the Bob Bullock Texas State Library Museum and the lower rotunda of the State Capitol during March. During her freshman, sophomore and junior years, Bradley also competed in the Visual Arts Scholastic Event at the State level where she received Gold Medals.
A member of the PGHS Art Club, PGHS Pride-in-Motion Marching Band, National Art Honor Society and National Honor Society, Amelia plans to attend the Engineering Honors Program at Texas A&M University-College Station and pursue a degree in Aerospace Engineering after graduation. Amelia is the daughter of Jim and Angela Bradley.
