Allan Perkins will always be remembered as a dedicated friend to the Kentucky Art Education Association. He was instrumental in developing our original website and making it a valuable resource for educators all over the country. In the countless long hours that he volunteered, his smiling face was always there to greet art educators as he welcomed members to each year’s fall conference.
This year KyAEA is excited to offer one, $500 Allan Perkins Scholarships in his memory. The funds for these scholarships were raised by the generous donations of the Perkins family and purchases during the KyAEA Conference Silent Auction. These scholarships are awarded to eligible students who are completing either their undergraduate or graduate degrees in Kentucky. If you are interested in applying, please complete the attached application and email it to Rebecca Williams by September 30, 2019.
Through these scholarships, the KyAEA honors Allan and his family’s continued involvement in our organization and their commitment to and belief in the vital role that art education can play in all lives. May his gentle and generous spirit continue to help others.
