SCAC Recipient of Scholarship Donation for Children and Youth
Alabama House Representative, Corley Ellis, and Shelby County Commissioner, Kevin Morris, presented the Shelby County Arts Council with a donation for children and youth scholarships for music, art education classes and annual camps. The presentation was made during our Annual Board Meeting on November 20, 2019.
“The donation allows us to reach out to local schools and work with administration to identify students who are interested in the Arts and may need financial assistance to take lessons and classes. We believe the infusion of arts into the community raises the value of that community at every level. The same with children and youth, infusing the arts into their life raises their confidence, their ability to concentrate, problem solve…the Arts help create a well-rounded student.” Bruce Andrews, Executive Director, Shelby County Arts Council.
