2017 Viola Award Nominee for Excellence in Arts Education.

Joe Cornett is a teacher of digital photography at Flagstaff High School, who has been noted for his excellence as an arts educator both in the classroom and in the wider community. Cornett makes an effort to provide his students with opportunities for exploring art beyond the classroom. His students are always well represented in the annual Youth Art Exhibition at the Coconino Center for the Arts. This exhibition features K-12 student artwork from throughout the Flagstaff area and provides a space for youth to display their work in a professional gallery setting. The Youth Art Exhibition is juried by a collection of NAU art students and in past years Cornett’s students have often won awards for their work.
