Education is for improving the lives of others and for
leaving your community and world better than you found it.

The Texas Panhandle's only private college preparatory school for students in grades 6 through 12
Mrs. Pilcher joined Ascension Academy in 2008 to teach Studio Art. She attended school at the Bradley Academy for the Visual Arts in York, Pennsylvania and worked in the field of graphic design in Maryland until she moved to Amarillo in 1998. Once here, she continued working as a graphic designer until the opportunity to go back to school full-time presented itself. During that time, Nannette worked as a sculptor/assistant under the artist Mickey Wells at Southwest Bronze while attending Amarillo college and then West Texas A&M University where she completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and graduated with honors in the spring of 2008. Nannette has also been teaching clay classes for kids and adults at the Amarillo Art Institute since 2007.
