Students in the College of Visual and Performing Arts share their thoughts:

“I was so honored to be one of the recipients from the Theatre department to receive part of your generous donation when I opened the letter informing me that I had been awarded part of your scholarship, I almost cried. This year has been very hard financially.” 

- Amber Klinker, Theatre major     

“Receiving this scholarship truly has made it possible for me to remain in college and pursue my career and I cannot possibly thank you enough for helping to fulfill that dream for me. I hope to be able to thank you in person someday!”   

- Aubree Faith Doud, Music Education major

“Thank you for your generous scholarship donation. As you are probably aware money is very hard to come by these days with the current economy, so any help with school bills is a blessing. That’s why I was extremely grateful to receive a scholarship through the music department.” 

- Nathan Garner, Music major

“I am honored to be one of the beneficiaries of your donation, and words cannot express how thankful I am for the investment you are making into my future! My goal is to intertwine the theatre and deaf communities.  Thank you for helping me pursue my dream by investing in my education.” 

- Melanie Lubs, Theatre major

"Receiving this scholarship is a great honor… I hope to one day be able to give back to my community as you have done.”  

- Blake Smith, Music Therapy major
