The Arts Council of the Eastern Shore (ACES) presented scholarships to seven students who have chosen to study an arts-related field in college. The winners and their families, the ACES Board of Directors and the Scholarship Committee honored the recipients at Ker Place in Onancock with a lovely reception on Sunday, June 9.  The ACES scholarships are designed to encourage local talented youth to pursue careers in the arts.

Angelica Garcia, a student at Eastern Shore Community College, is studying Liberal Arts majoring in music and writing.  Angelica maintains her own website and, in the short time she’s lived on the Eastern Shore, has written almost 100 songs.

Jeremy Lawrence, a recent graduate of Nandua High School, will attend William & Mary where he will study theatre arts.  He’s performed in multiple local theatre productions and has an internship at the Peterborough Playhouse in New Hampshire this summer.

Andrew Lewis, a graduate of Northampton High School, is attending Christopher Newport University, where he is studying music performance and jazz.  In addition to his studies, Andrew is performing with several bands.

Cody Simms, a recent graduate of Broadwater Academy, will attend the University of Virginia and plans to study architecture.  Cody is inspired by recycled art and, with his brother, has developed several enterprises to produce new artistic forms from recycled items.

Dallas Simms, a recent graduate of Broadwater Academy, will attend the University of Virginia and plans to study media arts.  Dallas has engaged in several entrepreneurial art projects, including selling bracelet cuffs hand crafted from recycled belts.  He and his brother call their business “Enjoy the Journey.”

John Wagner, a recent graduate of Nandua High School, will attend  Virginia Commonwealth University and plans to study kinetic imaging.  John has produced creative work in many art fields, but is especially attracted by the digital world; he expects that is where his future lies.

Chandler Webb, a recent graduate of Northampton High School, will attend the University of Virginia and plans to study visual arts.  For several years Chandler has been an intern at New Ravenna in Exmore.  His unique experience there has sparked his interest in pursuing a career in the arts.
