Valerie McKinley Memorial Scholarship
The Moreno Valley Arts Council Board of Directors has a Scholarship named the Valerie McKinley Memorial Scholarship. Valerie, a local artist and member of the Arts Council, lost her battle with cancer on January 28, 2005.
"We who knew Valerie, loved her. She put her heart into everything she did, and most especially, into her beautiful pastel paintings." (Katherine McDermott, MVAC Board President)
The Arts Council created the Scholarship with an initial deposit of $500.00, and commit to doing so annually. "We know it's not a lot money, we're hoping it will grow. We planted a seed in honor of Valerie" (Katherine McDermott)
If you'd like to contribute, please send your tax deductible gift to Moreno Valley Arts Council, PO Box 335, Angel Fire, NM 87710. Designate "Valerie McKinley Memorial Scholarship" on the memo line.
The Scholarship will be awarded to a Senior in the Cimarron School District. Interested Seniors from Cimarron High and Moreno Valley High School may apply to the Arts Council, and the winning student will receive the scholarship at Graduation. Some criteria will be evidence of passion and commitment to visual arts. Slides, photos or digital images of completed works are also a part of the submission requirements.
