STEPHENVILLE, Texas—Three Tarleton students were singled out for special recognition in the 19th volume of Anthology, the student literary publication which was released to the public on Tuesday during a reception in the Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center.

Grace Hallgarth of Stephenville, Molly Stewart of The Colony, and Lisa DeLuca of Frisco received the Editor’s Choice Awards presented to individuals who contributed outstanding works to the publication.

Jordan Looney of Stephenville’s Allied Body & Frame, Anthology’s long-time corporate sponsor, joined Anthology publication directors Dr. Marilyn Robitaille and Benedda Konvicka in making the presentation of the awards. Each winner was presented with a $100 prize.

Hallgarth, a junior fine arts major, was announced as this year’s Outstanding Artist for a variety of styles; Stewart, a junior majoring in sociology, was recognized as the Outstanding Contributor for the scope of work accepted in prose, poetry and visual arts; and DeLuca, a junior accounting major, received the Editor’s Choice Award for Outstanding Combination of Work for the pairing of creative non-fiction and the art that illustrates it.
