Cape Fear Community College art student and Sea Devil cheerleader Brinkley Munoz was presented with a $1,000 scholarship check from Cape Fear Community College Foundation on behalf of The Wilmington Art Association.
Founded in 1971, The Wilmington Art Association is a nonprofit organization that helps local visual artists gain community awareness by facilitating shows and exhibitions. The Association offers assistance by providing scholarships, sponsoring art related programs and special events. The CFCC scholarship program was created in 2011.
Wilmington Art Association members Sue Cunningham and Susan Buteau along with CFCC Foundation Office Manager Wendy Littlefield and Financial Aid Scholarship Coordinator Pat Whitfield presented the check to Ms. Munoz.
‘Wilmington is such an art area, so it’s good to bring young people into the arts.” said Association member Sue Buteau. Recipient Brinkley Munoz was thankful. “I will use this for supplies. It will also help with finances, which have been a struggle. It is a real blessing for me.” Students pursuing a career in the arts are eligible to become a recipient. WAA is dedicated to assisting students in their endeavors to pursue a career in the arts.
