Fifteen-year old Solana Jenkins was selected as the winner of the 2018 annual Arts Alive for Youth Scholarship. She is a junior at Liberty High School this fall and is busy practicing with the Liberty High School Marching band. The band was just reestablished after several years’ absence. Solana who has been studying the trumpet for five years, is following in the steps of her mother, who also played the trumpet in the Liberty High Band.
The AAR board set up scholarships in cultural arts fields to be awarded to students between the ages of 12-19. The purpose of the scholarships is to encourage and help talented young students to further training in their chosen artistic field. In her application, Solana wrote, “This scholarship will be used for music supporting materials and lessons for trumpet, different mutes required for music types, music stand, music itself, and hopefully an upgrade to my trumpet.” She has been included in multiple advanced bands in middle school and high school. She also wrote, “I hope to continue this passion through college and beyond in any capacity. I absolutely love playing trumpet. It provides me with an outlet to help me through all other challenges.”
After she found out she was a recipient, she said, “I am so thankful and excited to be able to expand my musical knowledge. It will really be of help to acquire materials that I need. I think this scholarship program is very effective in helping young people to pursue their talents.”
Our scholarship was established to encourage and help talented young students further their training in their artistic field whatever that may be.
Students may apply in all areas of visual or performing arts.
Deadline is 5pm, Tuesday, March 1, 2019. Questions? Email Jim-Char@comcast.net.
