Edison Arts Society will be presenting Scholarships to three talented Edison students. This is the sixth consecutive year that EAS has awarded scholarships specifically to ART students. Several students are recommended by the respective art teacher and the EAS Board selects each recipient. To qualify each student, must have a 3.5 GPA, attend one of Edison's public schools and must provide examples of their work. We are proud to announce that the recipients of the 2020 scholarships are:
Preston Romanienko from Middlesex County College will receive The EAS Angelo Orlando Scholarship. Preston is a visual art artist. He said, “This scholarship will be used to purchase art supplies and will be used for me to further studies in the arts.”
Mahi Vakil from J. P. Stevens High School will receive The EAS Certified Kitchens Scholarship. Mahi is a pianist. She plans to use the scholarship for more piano lessons.
Louis Forgione from Edison High School will receive The EAS D.J. Dittman Scholarship. Louis is a singer and will use the scholarship for more singing lessons. This is the second consecutive year he has been awarded a scholarship from EAS.
“EAS is so grateful for all the talent we have in our community. For example, this year we awarded a scholarship to a pianist, a singer and a visual artist. Each an aspect of the arts. EAS' goal is to engender a love for all the arts and by awarding the scholarships this year, we feel we have accomplished our goal. EAS membership is open to everyone -- you do not have to be an artist to appreciate and support the talents of your friends. Membership is only $35 per year. In 2019, Edison Chamber of Commerce awarded EAS the ORGANIZATION OF THE YEAR. Quite an achievement. Come join us!" said Gloria S. Dittman, President of EAS.
