June – July 2015 Scholarship Awards

Kaylie Mendoza

As part of continuing to support the arts and students in Anderson Valley through the two AVArts scholarships programs—Arts Scholarships for Graduating Seniors and Special Arts Related Scholarships for school-age AV students to attend arts classes, workshops, events and summer camps—AVArts made the following awards in June and July:

Arts Scholarship for Graduating Seniors

This year AVArts is made four awards to four deserving students in recognition of not just their artistic pursuits and accomplishments but also of their academic achievements. The awards were made possible by the generous support of local artists, educators and supporters of the arts in Anderson Valley and beyond and through a special donation from the George and Ruth Bradford Foundation. AVArts wishes each of the four students a year ahead full of discovery and continued creativity and inspiration as they further their educations and trusts that they will use the awards toward making the year ahead as successful, rewarding and artful as possible:

Lana DeWolff — a $500 scholarship to Lana in recognition of her talents and accomplishments in the visual and performing arts and in support of her continued education at Mendocino College.

Kaylie Mendoza — a $500 scholarship to Kaylie in recognition of her talents and accomplishments in the visual arts and in support of her continued education at Santa Rosa Junior College.

Victor Sánchez — a $1,500 scholarship to Victor in recognition of his talents and accomplishments in the visual and technical arts and in support of his continued education at The College of the Sequoias.

Selena Anguiano — a $2,500 scholarship to Selena in recognition of her talents and accomplishments in the visual and fine arts and in support of her continued education at the University of California, Davis.

Special Arts Related Scholarships

AVArts awarded $750 to support scholarships for Anderson Valley students Tricia Anguiano, Alejandro Carrillo and Jazline Pérez to participate in the Anderson Valley Youth Ensemble’s Drama Camp in August.
