In the past few months, the talent, dedication, and work of three graduates from the Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts gained national and international recognition.  “Fuel”, a documentary film by 1993 graduate, Josh Tickell, won the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival.  In February, Ben Viguerie, Class of 1994, was nominated for a Grammy as keyboardist for the Latin band, “Grupo Fantasma”.  And, it was recently announced that PolitiFact.com, from the St. Petersburg Times, won 2009 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting for its coverage of the 2008 election.  Angie Drobnic Holan, Class of 1990, is one of the five-person PolitiFact team.

Ms. Holan was interviewed for the graduation issue of Renaissance, which will be available on the website soon.  You can also get more information about each of these Louisiana stars on their websites:
