The Society of Bluffton Artists in Bluffton, SC, is pleased to announce the 2014 Naomi McCracken Scholarship Awards going to two very talented student artists. Each year SOBA awards scholarships to deserving graduating seniors from Bluffton High School who have been accepted to an accredited art college and plan to major in the visual arts.
The first place winner is Mirco Cavallarin who is planning a career in graphic design. He will be attending USCB for a year and then will attend Winthrop University.
Maria Garcia is the second place winner. She would like to be a fashion photographer and also plans to attend USCB for a year and then Winthrop.
They were judged based on their body of work and interviews with the SOBA scholarship committee. This young gentleman and lady are inspiring and are sure to be successful in their next level of artistic endeavors. Congratulations to them both!
