Cooper Brown, a talented senior at Fremont High, was selected as the first place winner of the Utah Senate Visual Arts Competition. Cooper was presented with the award and a $5,000 scholarship in the Senate Chambers during the legislative proceedings at the Utah State Capitol on February 5th.
Cooper's piece is an acrylic on canvas of a Native American girl. It was purchased by the state and will permanently hang in the Capitol. Cooper's art teacher, Michelle Montierth, said this is the first time a Fremont student has received this prestigious recognition. Cooper is the son of Matt and Cheridan Brown of Hooper.
