When the annual Eastern Kansas Scholastic Art Awards Exhibition opens Feb. 1, Hutchinson High School will be well represented.

There will be a total of 14 HHS works in the exhibition. Of those 14, eight received Gold Key (first place) finishes in competition. In all, jurors picked 152 pieces as Gold Key winners.

The regional Gold Key works are submitted for the national judging process. Any artists with pieces selected as Gold Key at nationals their art work will be in New York City for the summer show.

An additional six Silver Key (second place) winners are from Salthawk artists and will be featured in the Mark Arts exhibit as well. The exhibition is Feb. 1 through March 23 at Mark Arts in Wichita. In all there were 166 Silver Key winners in the show.

Thespians present 'The Bald Soprano'

Thespians at Hutchinson High School are doing the show The Bald Soprano by Eugene Ionesco. Seating will be very limited because it will be performed in room M104 at HHS, which is the drama classroom.

Show times are at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 25, and Saturday, Jan. 26. The theater opens at 7 p.m. each night. There is no admission charge for this production.

SAC is 20 years old

Happy Birthday SAC! Today marks the 20th anniversary of the Salthawk Activity Center. The first games in the gym were against Ark City on Jan. 15, 1999.

Yes, once upon a time, Sammy had no home to call his own for basketball. Games were played across the street at the Sports Arena, which swallows up regular high school games.

So, how about a "Throwback Tuesday?" Below is the news release announcing the opening of the SAC in January 1999.

Remember, all the details below should be read in the "past tense."
