Dare to Dream Scholarship Winners 2020

June 6th, 2020


Dear SCPA Alumni,

We are pleased to announce that we have chosen our first two recipients of the Dare to Dream Scholarship for 2020. Our winners are none other than Ndaya Hoskins and Madison Sickmeier.  Both recipients of this year’s scholarship are college bound and our $500 scholarships will aide them as they transition into their first year as college students. Ndaya is planning to attend Pace University and will major in Musical Theater. Madison is planning to attend the College of Charleston and will major in Marine Biology. Our recipients met all of the scholarship requirements and wrote remarkable essays about the personal challenges they’ve had to overcome. It is our personal wish to make Ndaya and Madison representatives for the class of 2020 as we move to stay connected with them in the future.

Our Associations theme for this year is to “create the legacy” and it is establishing efforts such as these that will allow for a legacy to grow from our time on the board. For that we thank you; The members and supporters of the Alumni. Two months ago we came together as a board and decided we wanted to develop and give a scholarship for these students. Through our diligence we have been able to give birth to something special in the mists of this COVID-19 Pandemic, where normal operations forced us to be apart and be creative and we are so proud of our scholarship team for continuing to push through for this!

This is not the end of the road when it comes to this project. We want to see the Dare to Dream Scholarship continue to grow in both our number of applicants and the amount of scholarships we give out in the future. We also want to make sure our Alumni communities collective voice is heard when putting together scholarship opportunities moving forward.

In the weeks to come we plan to conduct and release interviews on social media so you can meet our scholarship winners.

With the future of education in this pandemic still unclear we want to make sure that we have Scholarship opportunities established for the talented SCPA Class of 2021.
