Conclusion of General Acknowledgments

Scholarship Pilot Apprentices, Manuel Berry, Deja Brown Kali Mobley, and William Scott have helped to lay a firm foundation to this adventuresome mentoring initiative. Mary Midgett and the other teachers, students, parents and staff at Burnett CDC have taken profound leaps in our classrooms. Gabriela Falcao Vieira and Peter Carson refurbished our Bylaws. Lisa Hoffman and Lynn Lampky helped with grant writing and development. Board members and advisors like Mehrzad Khajenoori, Marissa Kunz, Anna-Lisa Froman, Justin Hoover, Lydia Titcomb and Diane Scarritt have given their guidance, countless hours and substantial funds. They and volunteers like Mike Dovbish, Claire Frances, Beth Grinberg, Emily Hughes, Mehrzad Khajenoori, Devan Miller, Richard Mitchell and Gabrielle Thormann have made our mission, (to build long-term mentorships between artists and under-privileged youth through innovative arts projects), feel inspired. For their efforts and everyone else’s who made gifts of time, money, supplies and encouragement we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Thank you for your dollars, deeds and dreams!
