Clover Hill High School won a $6,100 Partners in the Arts grant for the Paths Project, which combines English, history and visual arts to record the experiences of World War II veterans and their families. Students in grades 10 through 12 will interpret the experiences in written and visual representations that will be shared online and in print in the Paths journal.

CHHS is one of only seven schools to win a 2012-2013 Partners in the Arts grant from the University of Richmond School of Professional and Continuing Studies. The awards allow schools to bring in visiting artists to train teachers and work with students and to buy supplies to carry out the projects.
