Twelve local students will have their winning art prominently displayed inside the medical center for a year


Williamson Medical Center, in partnership with the Realtor® Good Works Foundation, unveiled the artwork of the 2018 Student Art Competition finalists. For the thirty-third year, hundreds of Williamson County students submitted their pieces to be displayed at Williamson Medical Center and for the chance to win up to $1,000 in cash-prizes. From all the entries, 12 finalists were chosen.

Brentwood High School’s Mac Toman was awarded first place in this year’s competition. Toman, and Brentwood High School’s art department, each received $1,000. Ashlyn Anderson, of Franklin High School, received the $500 second place award, while Catalina Roa, of Brentwood High School, was awarded $250 for third place. The remaining finalists received $100 each.

“Williamson County has so many talented young artists and we are proud to support them by providing a platform to showcase their talents,” said Nichole Volk, Director of Marketing and Business Development at Williamson Medical Center. “When looking at these pieces, you would think that this work must have been done by someone who has been mastering their craft for decades—that’s just how talented these students are.”

As with previous years, Williamson Medical Center has each piece of artwork professionally framed, at no cost to the students, and hangs the pieces along hospital walls for the public to see.

The artwork can be found within the Williamson Tower building, near the lobby elevators. They will remain on display through August 2019.

In addition, all 12 finalists will have their artwork viewable on Williamson Medical Center’s website at
