FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Springtime in Paris for Worthy Teen
SEATTLE, Washington, December 1, 1963—The Seattle Art Academy is pleased to announce that the winner of its annual artistic competition for promising high school students is sixteen-year-old, Regan Valentine Worthy, a sophomore at Franklin High School. Regan has been awarded a scholarship to study at École d’Art Française in Paris for the Spring semester, running from January through May 1964.
Regan is the oldest daughter of Raymond Worthy, managing editor at the Seattle Courier Dispatch, and wife, Abigail (best known to Courier Dispatch readers as reporter and Features editor, Abby Padgett). Regan has a younger sister, Rosalind, who she calls “My best friend and cherished Little Sis.” The family is expecting their third child, due late-February or early-March.
A natural artist, Regan says she’s excited to be visiting another country where she’ll be able to use the French she’s been learning at school. Named for her paternal grandmother and the day her father proposed to her mother, she plans to study at the Seattle Art Academy upon graduation. We wish you all the best, Regan!
The Seattle Art Academy, established in 1945, is proud of its commitment to providing local residents the opportunity to expand their artistic knowledge and abilities. Courses give students a well-rounded education in all aspects of art history and theory and provides graduates with the tools they’ll need to succeed as commercial artists and educators.
