Panhandle Seminole Club Annual Scholarship Banquet.

 

The Panhandle Seminole Club held their annual Scholarship Awards Banquet on Thursday August 25 and awarded four $1000 scholarships to local students attending FSU this term. Marianna High's Whitney Basford, Victoria Mock & Caleb Sims and Andi Sioux Pierce of Graceville.

 

Guest speakers for the event were Cameron Jackson, Executive Director and Producing Artistic Director of the School of Theatre at Florida State and three of the schools graduate students, Amanda Chandler, Heather McFarland and Ashley Kerns. Professor Jackson explained that the school does much more than provide opportunities for growth as an artist or actor but also prepares students to work professionally at top liberal arts colleges as well as literary management positions in theatres and leading small theatre companies in urban centers. The three students gave interesting histories of their experiences with the School of Theatre. Special guests at the banquet were Chipola College Theatre Director, Charles Sirmon, and 13 of his 2nd year theatre students.
