Meanwhile, Oceana Emerson, another standout academy senior, has been awarded the prestigious Anna Lamar Switzer Endowed Scholarship, totaling $3,000. Emerson’s remarkable talent and creativity were showcased through a series of impressive works spanning various artistic mediums. Her successful portfolio application, meeting stringent criteria and undergoing rigorous evaluation by a jury of faculty members, exemplifies her dedication to her craft and academic pursuits. Emerson’s scholarship award not only recognizes her artistic prowess but also provides crucial support as she continues her education journey at PSC, working towards earning her associate of arts degree.
