Huntington North High School seniors Zach Allen, Alex Stanley, Andrea Broxon and Andrea Shriner have been named Artists of the Month for April by the LaFontaine Arts Council.

Allen, nominated by HNHS choral instructor John Wenning, is a four-year member of the school's choral program and serves as dance captain of the Varsity Singers. He is an accomplished pianist and has won numerous awards in piano and vocal competitions, Wenning said. Allen is the son of Tim and Penny Allen.

Broxon has participated in every HNHS show during her four years of high school, says Ruth Reed, theater instructor and Masque and Gavel sponsor, including melodramas, one-act play festivals, winter plays, variety shows and spring musicals. Broxon, the daughter of John and A.J. Broxon, plans to attend Indiana-Purdue University to major in English with a minor in theater.

Shriner, the daughter of David and Amy Shriner, was nominated by band instructor Chris Whitacre. She has earned awards in solo and ensemble contests all four years of high school.
