Yeah, They're the Most Likely to Succeed
Asher Frankfurt, a local kid, read his screenplay to a Smithsonian audience recently. No one will even look at ours.
Congrats to three local high school students who were recently honored as Presidential Scholars of the Arts. Very big deal. These three kids -- Jay Jackson (Carrollton), Brittanie Brown (Oak Cliff) and Asher Frankfurt (Dallas) -- were three of just 20 students nationwide to win the award.
The three were honored at by President Bush during a White House reception on a recent trip to Washington D.C. While there, Frankfurt, a screenwriter, gave a reading and had his work displayed in a special exhibit at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, while Jackson and Brown, a dance choreographer and modern dancer, respectively, performed at the Kennedy Center. --Jesse Hyde
