The Aspire Higher Scholarship

The “Aspire Higher” Scholarship exists to honor the creative life of our daughter, Krista, who left us all too soon before she could realize her dreams in the arts. Although she was successful in politics and communications right out of college, serving two terms on the Exeter Town council and working with countless statewide political initiatives, she went on to embrace a life in the Arts. Krista was passionate about music, film, theater and dance and was a budding actor and screen writer. She “aspired higher” in all her endeavors while devoting much of her energy to encourage and help others do the same. “Reach for your dreams!”   was her mantra. We carry on her legacy of goodwill by supporting aspiring individuals who share her artistic passion and wish to pursue a future in the Arts. Five $1000 awards will be presented in Spring of 2017. Applicants must be a graduating senior in a RI school whose life was significantly impacted by the arts and/or who will be going on to pursue college level or workshop studies in the one of the Fine or Applied Arts:

Architecture/ Structural/ Landscape… Fine Arts/Painting/Drawing/Illustration/Sculpture…
Performing Arts/Dance/Theatre/Music… Writing/Fiction/Non-Fiction/Screenwriting/Poetry Film/Video/Animation/Gaming… Design/Product/Fashion/Jewelry/Graphic/Interior…
