The portfolio review and tuition scholarship program is possible thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor who was inspired by First Columbia Bank’s Teen Star Competition.
“The donor is impressed by the talented high school vocalists and musicians who perform in the annual Teen Star Competition,” said James Brown, dean of the College of Liberal Arts. “The concept behind these scholarships is to recognize talented young people who excel in the visual arts.”
