On May 23, 2012, Carol Holmes, Judy Uherek and Nan Loeffler of the Fine Arts Association of the Hill Country were at the Brady High School annual awards program to present the $1000 scholarship to graduating senior Autumn Werle.
Autumn has been in art classes for four years, was the vice president of the Brady High School Art Club, and painted and oversaw the completion of three large scale bulldog murals at Brady High School. Her art work was selected at VASE Region XV contest to go to state. She was also on the yearbook staff and has a love for photography.
She plans to attend the Art Institute of Fort Worth and in July will start working toward a degree in graphic design. She is the daughter of Jennifer and Chad Werle of Brady.
