MABANK–Mabank High School junior Cheyanna Sauve’s art has made waves on the chapter, state and national level as she was recognized for all three May 14 at Mabank High School.
Sauve’s piece was submitted for the Junior American Citizen Art Poster contest to celebrate the 400th year of the landing of the Mayflower ship. Artists were asked to use their artistic talents, skills and historical knowledge to create a piece that went along with the theme of rising and shining for opportunities in the New World. 
Sauve, along with her brother Jakob, sister Savanna, her mother Pepperlynn and father Christopher, were honored by the Sarah Maples Chapter at the entrance of Mabank High School May 14. 
The Sarah Maples Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution recognized Sauve with a certified final copy of her work, along with a $25 Walmart gift card as the chapter continues to support education and patriotism. Honorary Regent Susan Martz-Cothran and Regent Suzanne Fife were on hand to present the awards and medals to Sauve. 
After taking first place from the Chapter, Sauve’s piece was submitted to the Texas State competition for the 11th grade poster contest. Again, Sauve’s art stood out above the rest as she placed first. 
With two first-place awards already in her possession, Sauve’s piece was sent to the highest level, the Junior American Citizen poster contest in Washington, D.C. Sauve completed the sweep with a win at the National level, making her piece certified as well as Sauve receiving a National medal and special piece of jewelry from the Sarah Maples chapter. 
Surrounded by her family, regents, as well as her high school art teacher Christine Robinson, HS Principal Charity Groom and Superintendent Brad Koskelin, Sauve excitedly received her awards and is even more excited to get started on next year’s contest as she enters her senior year at Mabank High School. 
Next year’s contest is centered around the 100th anniversary of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier: Rise and Shine for Duty, Honor and Patriotism. 
Sauve also hopes to become a curator in the near future. Curators are in charge of a collection of exhibits in a museum or art gallery. Their job is to build up collections, often in specialist areas. Curators develop ways in which objects, archives and artworks can be interpreted, through exhibitions, publications, events and audio-visual presentations. 
The future is bright for Sauve and she hopes to continue her path through art which has already seen so many distinctions and honors.
