On May 12, at an awards ceremony held at Mingus Union High School, three talented young artists each received a $500 scholarship jointly presented by the Sedona Arts Center (SAC) and the Sedona Visual Artists' Coalition (SVAC). The scholarship winners were, Haley Backus, Zach Kline and Gabriela Giuerrero. These deserving students demonstrated strong technical and creative skills which captured the attention of the selection committee. Each of these students will be furthering their art studies at the college level. Attending the ceremony were David Zimmer, president of the SAC Board of Directors, Pam Frazier, Executive Director of SAC and Carolyn Ensley, SVAC Scholarship Chair. "Since the Mission Statements of both SAC and SVAC center around education, artistic development and community it was natural that we work together on this scholarship endeavor. These are the artists of the future and they need to know that their community art organizations support them," said Carolyn Ensley. In addition to receiving the scholarships, each winner also received a one year membership in both the Sedona Arts Center and the Sedona Visual Artists' Coalition.
