Students earn Classic Center performing arts scholarships

The Classic Center Cultural Foundation has awarded three Rabun Gap seniors with college scholarships.
Three seniors involved in the performing arts were awarded scholarships by the Classic Center Cultural Foundation.

Simon Park ‘20, Olivia Harris ‘20, and Cydni Coppage ‘20 were this year’s scholarship winners for Rabun Gap. The audition process is usually held at the Classic Center in Athens, GA, but was done virtually this year due to Covid-19. The generous $2,000 scholarships are awarded to the students as well as a $500 contribution to the students’ performing arts departments. Park won for instrumental music, Harris won for vocal music, and Coppage won for dance. The Rabun Gap winners will attend the following schools: Boston Conservatory at Berklee (Park), UNC Chapel Hill (Harris), and Georgia College & State University (Coppage). 

This is the fifth year the scholarship has been offered to students in Rabun County. The Classic Center Cultural Foundation awards its performing arts scholarships to four students in Rabun County, four students from Athens and the surrounding counties, and one from Greene County.
