Ennis Arts Association scholarships awarded
The Ennis Arts Association is pleased to have awarded two $1000. scholarships to two Ennis High School graduates: Ty Rolfe and Rebekah Faith Cook.
Because last year the EAA was unable to have its Madison Valley Arts Festival (due to COVID-19), the resources to award two scholarships were not available. So, the Madison Valley Woman’s Club granted $1000 to the EAA, making the two art-related scholarships possible. Many thanks to the MVWC.
Ty Rolfe plans to attend the University of Montana. He developed his basic skills in art as a student at Ennis High, taking classes in woodworking, welding, art history, animation, and 3D art, creating pottery and wire sculptures. During his senior year, his class in computer-aided design solidified his desire to pursue a degree in media arts. EAA is delighted to aid Tyler with his educational pursuits.
He will be serving as a volunteer at the EAA Arts Festival in Peter T Park July 31st. Come by to meet and congratulate him!
The second EAA scholarship recipient is Rebekah Faith Cook. She intends to attend Montana State Honors College to pursue a degree in Livestock and Industry Management as well as in English, with a focus on writing. She has written hundreds of poems and short stories and is working on a series of books for young adults. Rebekah’s application revealed a young lady with a great work ethic and a high motivation to use her leadership and scholarship capabilities in the future to give back to her community. We will enjoy following her progress as she has promised to return to Ennis and report on her studies at an EAA meeting next year.
