2014 Award Recipients
Zoe Ronen (HVS ’14) lives in Copake, NY and came to Hawthorne Valley in his junior year. A gifted musician, Zoe plays the trumpet, mostly classical but also jazz and other types of music. His original composition “Three Textures” is a piece for piano and trumpet. Zoe has been playing in the Empire State Youth Orchestra, and will continue his music education at Boston University this fall.
After he graduated from HVS in 2005, Myles Ryan completed training in Eurythmy, which led him to Switzerland, where he encountered Kleinodienkunst, spiritually inspired wearable art. In an age of mass-produced jewelry, Myles saw an unmet need which he could meet with his own artistic capacities. He plans to continue his training in metal work and gemology and to open a workshop in the US to further this art.
