Georgia Students Awarded Youth Arts Scholarships

Written by  Courtesy Willingway Thursday, 05 June 2014 10:28

  Willingway, the addiction treatment experts, presents their first Scholarship for the Arts during Honors Week at local schools.

 

  The scholarship winners are selected by the schools’ art educators for outstanding commitment to academics and great artistic and creative potential. The awarded scholarships will enable students to attend the Averitt Center for the Arts Summer Arts Program.

 

  Barbara Reid, CEO of Willingway, said “By helping to cultivate creativity in young people, Willingway hopes that students find many rewarding and enriching activities in life without the need for drug and alcohol use.  The Willingway Youth Arts Scholarships were created to show and encourage students that there are many fulfilling paths in life, like the arts.”

 

  In addition to awarding the scholarships, Willingway counselors will spend one day each semester meeting with the teens at the Averitt Center for the Arts to talk preventatively about substance abuse.

 

  Over the past 40 years, Willingway has helped more than 20,000 patients recover from alcohol and drug dependency. For more information, visit http://www.willingway.com.
