A graduate student at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) has been selected for two highly competitive local leadership and community service opportunities.
Eliza Walmsley, a second-year student in the School of Design and Production’s (D&P) Performing Arts Management Program, was named a participant scholar by the Women’s Fund of Winston-Salem and was chosen for the United Way’s 2013 Project Blueprint.
Since 2007, The Women’s Fund has awarded participant scholarships to 63 deserving women and girls. Participant scholarships are not cash awards, but they offer the recipients the full benefits of membership in The Women’s Fund.
United Way’s Project Blueprint is a leadership development program that aims to increase the number of individuals from under-represented groups and communities providing leadership in local health, government and human services organizations. This marks the 22nd year that our United Way has provided this valuable service.
Walmsley is a native of Ridgeway, Va., and graduated Magna Cum Laude in December 2009 from High Point University with a BA in Performance Theatre and a minor in History.
