Fairhope, AL. — The Original Oyster House Restaurant honored two Baldwin County art students with our 3rd Annual Chelsea Garvin Spirit Award Scholarship Program. This is the third year we have given scholarships to area art students in the name of Chelsea, a former Fairhope High School art student, Fish River Fire Department Rescue Diver and Original Oyster House employee. Tragically, Chelsea was killed in a boating accident in the fall of 2005.

On Monday, March 24, 2008 at our Causeway location in Mobile, Alabama we honored Victoria Spriggs a very talented Spanish Fort senior high school student with a $1000 scholarship. Victoria has been accepted at the Savannah College of Art and Design there she plans to study graphic design, illustration and painting. She also recently found out her artwork will be used on the cover of the next GMAC bowl program.

On Tuesday, March 25, 2008 at our Gulf Shores location, we honored Kristin Morgan Carnathan a bright, talented, Robertsdale high school senior with a second scholarship in the amount of $1000 to pursue her passion of fashion merchandising and design. Kristin has been accepted to and plans to attend the University of Alabama. Kristin has continued to develop her talents under the direction of Bryant Baggett the new art teacher at Robertsdale High School.

Congratulations to both of these talented and deserving art students, they are shining examples of what is right with Baldwin County school art programs.
