OHS Junior Ava Van Vorst was voted as the winner of the Oak Hall One School Art Contest by long-time UF Athletic Director Emeritus Jeremy Foley, 1996 National Championship team co-captain and all SEC Linebacker James Bates (Batesy), and the legendary Head Ball Coach, Steve Spurrier. Her art will be hung in Spurrier’s Gridiron Grille in the Championship room surrounded by Batesy’s portraits of each of Gator National Championship coaches.

The unveiling of her portrait was done in great company!  Ava and her family enjoyed a celebratory dinner with the Head Ball Coach, Foley, and Bates.

Ava was also just chosen for the Gainesville Sun All-Area Golf Team. Her efforts in art, athletics, and academics are a shining example of the Oak Hall school mission.  Congratulations, Ava, for all of your recent successes.  We can’t wait to see what you do next!

Thank you to Freddie Wehbe and Spurrier’s Gridiron Grill for encouraging our students to grow!
