I’m happy to announce the awarding of two external scholarships I secured this year. Based on a preselection of finalists and an impressive set of audition/interviews yesterday, the committee from the Rossmoor Retirement Community Theatre group awarded a $2000 scholarship to Yoshi Asai and a $1750 scholarship to Alex Draa. The other finalists, Dani Issa and Will Corkery, were also impressive and the committee was genuinely sorry they couldn’t award all four. The $2000 Wilcox Scholarship will be awarded on an annual basis to a qualified ongoing theatre student.
Kudos to Professor Kahn for his hard work on behalf of the Department and its students, and congratulations to the winners and finalists!
