In addition to our memorial scholarships, The Voices Foundation recognizes college bound students with individually assessed scholarships. Specially selected scholarships include:
Milton Sand Scholarship
Milton Sand as a life-long resident of St. Bernard, and a Chalmette High School graduate who excelled in several artistic mediums.
A self-taught artist and the founder of Sand Graphic & Design, Milton strove to continualy expand his knowledge of art, photography, and videography. His work included sign painting, pastels, oils, pen & ink, graphic arts, and wood carving.
He also designed and created theatrical sets for Shine Productions. Throughout his lifetime, Milton encouraged and mentored young artists to continue learning and follow their passion.
Rita Stockstill-O’Sullivan Scholarship
Rita Stockstill-O’Sullivan began her teaching career in 1980, sharing with children all across the New Orleans area. Rita said it best herself — “Theatre and young people are two of my strongest passions.” This was evident in her long career as a teacher, director, and mentor. Most recently Rita was teaching in the St. Tammany Parish Talented Theatre Program. Rita not only worked many years in the school system, but also began her own ANGELS Academy of Drama in Slidell. Hundreds of children performed in “Ms. Rita’s” productions. Many a student waiting in the wings to go on have heard Ms. Rita say “Take your first step forward. Find life in this moment. Don’t be afraid.”
What a lesson for each of us.
