“Providing scholarships and awards to assist emerging artistic talent from Catawba County is a win-win proposition,” said Sally Fanjoy, committee co-chair. “These talented students bring enrichment to our community and cultural arts organizations.”
The University of North Carolina School of the Arts Fund for Catawba County Endowment was created in 1999 to provide scholarships for Catawba County students attending UNCSA and to award grants to cultural arts organizations within the county.
A diverse advisory board reviews applications and makes selections for grant funding. Members of the advisory board are selected based on their knowledge of the arts community. In addition to Fanjoy, board members include committee co-chair Phil Barringer, John Coffey, Kimberly George, Connie Kincaid, and Michelle Morgan.
