Graves County High School hired Jack Goodwin as its first art teacher when the school opened in 1985. That was 27 years ago. Goodwin will retire after graduation of the Class of 2012 May 15. Throughout April, a number of his paintings and those of his students will be on display in the Graves County Schools’ Performing Arts Center Gallery. Goodwin’s paintings will be sold through a silent auction. Bids can be made throughout April. All proceeds will go into a fund to award a scholarship each year in Goodwin’s name. It will go to an art student who has a monetary need to be used in conjunction with whatever grants that student can obtain. Financial need and grades in the visual arts will be the sole requisites.
