Beaverton Arts Foundation recognizes 13 students
Thirteen students have won scholarships of $1,500 each from the Beaverton Arts Foundation for their work in the performing or visual arts.
The students were recognized last week (June 5) at a Beaverton City Council meeting, during which a video was shown depicting samples of their work.
The scholarships will enable the recipients to pursue their post-secondary education. More than 100 high school and college-age students have been helped by the program in the past 19 years.
Students in Beaverton area high schools and Portland Community College are eligible for the awards from the foundation, which was established in 1999.
The video was introduced by Arts Foundation Chairwoman Pat Reser, whose own family foundation contributed to the awards along with Southminster Presbyterian Church's Celebration of Creativity.
Students are listed alphabetically by category:
Achievement in performing arts: Christine Chu, Sunset High School; Todd Fisher, Portland Community College; Aveek Ganguly, Westview High School; Lucy Gordon, Sunset High School; William Greer, Southridge High School; Carlos Moreno, Sunset High School; Aishani Saha, Westview High School.
