We are excited to announce our scholarship award winners for 2023: Michaela Kwak and Emma Coyer! The Hopewell Valley Arts Council has awarded art scholarships to Hopewell Valley Central High School graduating seniors every year since 2015. These scholarships are a critical part of our mission to encourage creativity in the Hopewell Valley community and foster a lifelong participation in the arts.  Both students illustrate substantial talent and deep interest in their selected area of study, and demonstrate commitment to furthering their education in the arts. Emma will continue her passion for art at Syracuse University this fall as a student in the College of Visual and Performing Arts majoring in design. Michaela Kwak will also coincidentally be attending Syracuse University in the fall and will major in film production. We received applications from many wonderful students. We wish them all the very best, and hope they will continue to enjoy art and make art, as they move on to the next phase of their lives.
