In her own words she says, “My parents opened the shop for me so that I could raise money to be able to go to the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale. Through my hard work through the store, I submitted a whole project showing everything I did with the start-up and day-to-day running of the store. The school ended up giving me a big scholarship which made me able to attend.”
Now she and her parents are offering a cash scholarship based upon a one thousand or more word essay. The essays should be about “How is our future predicated upon history?”
Eligible contestants must be enrolled at Lemon Bay High School, home schooled, attending or planning to attend college or vocational school, and must be a resident for at least one year, or be the child of a Boca Grande resident. Contestants can also be the child of a parent who is currently employed full-time on the island and has been employed for at least two years.
Essays must be submitted by Saturday, April 20, and the winner(s) will be announced Sunday, April 28 at 1p.m. during the Boca Grande Centennial Celebration located at the Historical Train Depot. For more info please call Brendalee @(352)586-0480 or email Antiqueboutique8@aol.com.
