Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School is pleased to announce the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts honored a Montgomery Catholic senior and a 2017 graduate with the teen leadership award at their “Volunteers Cultivate the Best” luncheon.  Montgomery Catholic senior Maria Barragan and Alumni Carson Scott ’17 were given the Teen Leadership award in recognition of their contributions on October 16, 2017. 


Ms. Alice Novak, MMFA Curator of Education said of Barragan and Scott, ” These two young women from the MUSES teen council displayed outstanding leadership last year, including co-hosting a premier arts events for teens in Montgomery.  Carson worked many special events, and Maria helped teach art camp.  Both have decided to major in art history, and we are so proud and know they will add so much to the field.”

 Novak teaches Art History and both young women were her students. Scott was missed at the event because she is away at college. Maria and her mother attended where Maria was surprised to be honored. 

Ms. Novak said, “Maria was an art history student at the Museum last year and demonstrated a gift for making art relevant and accessible. She was a leader in class discussions (always making everyone laugh) and invited all of us to see art and the world in new ways.  She is an incredibly talented as a teacher too, which we discovered at Art Camp this summer. We are glad she has one more year to serve the Museum on the MUSES teen council!  We hope students in Montgomery will ask Maria about the fun things offered for teens at the Museum.” 

Barragan plans to pursue an art degree in college. She is the daughter of Deonicio and Claudia Barragan of Montgomery.
