Tonight, MRIGlobal will present two Paseo students with full scholarships to the Kansas City Art Institute's Pre-College Art Lab.
Junior Clinton Long and sophomore Dakota Niederhauser will receive three hours of college credit upon completion of the Art Lab program.
“Scholarships to Kansas City Art Institute’s Pre-College Art Lab present Clinton and Dakota with three intense, art-filled weeks to experience the commitment it takes to be an artist,” said Pamela Sahl, Paseo Academy Chair of Visual Arts. “It’s a rare opportunity few young artists receive and quite an honor for our students. I applaud MRIGlobal for its generosity and commitment to Paseo.”
In the last five years, MRIGlobal has provided scholarships to nine Paseo students, selected for their artistic and scholastic accomplishment.
The scholarship presentation will be made during the senior art show and sale at Paseo Academy, 4747 Flora Ave., on Thursday, April 17 at 6:45 p.m.
