“This College gave me strong foundation skills, preparation that is 100 percent transferable to any field. The scholarship I received validated my potential as much as provided me with much needed financial support. All of us can thank artists for bringing sparks of invention, color, and inspiration unimaginable to me without an art education. You will make an impact with your contribution.” – Connie Hayes ’80
