A Letter From THE PRESIDENT
THERE'S ALWAYS SOMETHING GOING ON
Spring has definitely sprung in North Augusta!
Now that the annual Masters golf tournament has returned to full capacity and successfully coated its 86th champion, Scottie Scheffler, the North Augusta Cultural Arts Council is celebrating another “win” off the golf course!
Pro golfer Kevin Kisner, and his wife, Brittany, through their family foundation, selected the North Augusta Cultural Arts Council to receive a $10,000 grant to provide dance scholarships to disadvantaged students in our community. What a remarkable way to celebrate the rites of spring, giving the NACAC a new and meaningful way to engage local students into the arts!
The “Gift of Dance” grant is a first for the North Augusta Cultural Arts Council. The board of directors has already established a committee to oversee the awards process to assure the Kisner Foundation that the directives are fully accomplished in accordance with the scholarship guidelines set forth by the NACAC.
Student scholarship applications can be retrieved through our website – www.naartscouncil.com or on site at either one of North Augusta’s dance studios, then mailed to the NACAC for consideration.
Next month: stay tuned for more information coming your way for North Augusta’s 2022 Music in the Park starting in May!
- Begins May 12th!
