Having quality materials and framing means more time to focus on the quality of my work instead of working to afford them.

“I cannot begin to even express how grateful I am. I feel as saying “thank you” is not enough.”

“I am so glad I made the decision to apply. Upon receiving the scholarship, I found that I could afford all the supplies I needed and then some. Without this generous scholarship and all the people behind it, I really do not think I would have been able to finish that fall semester. Thanks in a very large part to the Hebert family I was able to push through to senior proposal and get approved to start work on my senior gallery exhibition.
