Seniors Receive $20,000 In Scholarships

Lilia Garcia and Monty Trainer of the Coconut Grove Arts Festival flank the scholarship winners. 

The Coconut Grove Arts & Historical Association Scholarship Program recognized 20 talented art students from Miami-Dade County this past Saturday by presenting a $1,000 scholarship to each of the graduating seniors.
  
The scholarship awards were presented in conjunction with the opening of the First Impressions exhibition at the Gallery@CGAF which showcases the works of the Scholarship recipients.

Scholarship was created in 2018 in Memory of Jae Sweeny-Lardner, a young, brilliant life gone too soon. Jae attended NWSA, and with this scholarship, her memory is honored and carries her legacy of the appreciation and love of art forward to future generations of young, talented artists. 

Assisting with the selection process for this year’s awards is the Fund 4 Design & Art Education, an organization created and maintained by retired arts educators across the County. The organization has assisted the Arts Festival in selecting some of Miami-Dade’s best arts students since 2013.
