Art Scholarship Voices

"Obtaining my BA degree has been a lifelong dream since I can remember. The journey has not been easy but in my last semester at Sac State I was the lucky and blessed recipient of the Peggy Saunders Hall Memorial Scholarship. I am thankful to my professors who believed in me and my work, and who encouraged me to apply. Thankful to the Sac State Art Department as a whole for teaching me that in art, the idea of community is to be invested in and always shared. I am forever thankful to the Scholarship Committee and Mrs. Janet B. Schmidt (sister of Peggy Saunders Hall) for their decision in this award. For me, this is life changing. The generous award allowed me to graduate, and has made it possible for me to plan for my future pursuing a teaching credential or a Master's degree in the near future."
Mayra Ramos Chavez, Peggy Saunders Hall Memorial Scholarship 2017

"Until recently my dreams of becoming an artist were thought of as something that would not come to reality. However, receiving support from staff and fellow students at Sac State helped me overcome that wall of impossibility. The opportunities given helped me further my exploration in the art world as well as prepare me for the future."
Amanda Pascual, University Art Product Award 2017

"I would like to extend my sincerest appreciation to the College of Arts and Letters for providing opportunities where students can showcase their work. The Annual Student Award show gave me a platform to present my art and get to know the community at Sacramento State."
Melissa Garcia, Frederick M. Peyser Prize 2017
