The Sulphur Springs High School Fine Arts Showcase Tuesday night was extra special for one student.

Chase Crouch, a 10th-grade cello student, got a special award there. He was honored as a Texas Music Scholar. Crouch was nominated for the honor by his director, Zander Smith. The award is given by the Texas Music Educators Association, which sponsors the Texas All-State Bands, Orchestras and Choirs. 

Last year, fewer than 2,300 students were named as Texas Music Scholars. The award is given to students who have exhibited outstanding qualities in scholastic merit, musicianship and citizenship in their school and community during the 2016-17 school year. 

The Texas Music Educators Association, headquartered in Austin, is an association of more than 12,000 music teachers whose goals are to support music education in Texas, provide professional growth opportunities for educators, foster public support for music in schools and offer quality musical experiences for students.

The Fine Arts Showcase featured performances by the Blue Blazes, student-directed scenes from advanced theater students, the SSHS Jazz Band, the SSHS Orchestra and SSHS choirs. Art students and theatre tech students had displays in the lobby of the auditorium, with more than two dozen works on display. They featured sculpture, pen-and-ink drawing and painting, among genres. About two dozen more were inside the auditorium.
