Help Us Reach our $5000 Goal
for the Clark Center
Scholarship & Grants Fund
Help us reach our $5,000 goal and
be a part of the legacy our students are creating.
Since 2004, the Clark Center has provided over $150,000 in performing arts scholarships and grants to students and teachers in the Lucia Mar Unified School District.
Look at where some of our past scholarship and grant recipients are today!
2008 recipient, Joanna Jones, graduated from Nipomo High School and studied Musical Theatre at UCLA. Now she’s starring in the Broadway hit, Hamilton: An American Musical. “I’m completely blown away,” Joanna told The Clark Center. “From the second I saw the show, I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of. To be making my Broadway debut in such a way is beyond what I could have imagined. Truly a dream come true.” Joanna is always happy to help support the Center where she performed in Nipomo High School musicals like AIDA and Beauty & the Beast, and says, “I hope you will consider investing into a young artist’s life.”
Katie Boeck received a Clark Center Scholarship in 2006 and studied at UCLA’s Ray Bolter Musical Theatre Program. Katie made her Broadway debut in 2015 in the Tony-nominated revival of Spring Awakening with Deaf West Theatre. “Your money directly impacts young artists with big dreams who want to change the world, and we need that now more than ever,” Katie expressed. “Please consider giving to the Clark Center Scholarship and Grants Fund and help make those dreams a reality just like you did for me.”
2011 recipient, Molly Dobbs, attended the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow and earned an MFA from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. Molly spent last summer in Tennessee with the Cumberland County Playhouse, playing Dyanne in Million Dollar Quartet, Babette in Beauty and the Beast, and Nina in Sister Act. Molly is back on the Central Coast playing Ellie in Freaky Friday at PCPA, which plays through December 23rd in Santa Maria. “Please consider giving a gift to the Clark Center Scholarship & Grants Fund, Molly requested, and help other artists like me achieve their dreams.”
Katie Lee is a 2012 recipient who attended Cal State University Fullerton and earned a BFA in Musical Theatre. Within a year of graduation, Katie was hired to perform on Norwegian Escape in The Brat Pack at For The Record Live. Katie hopes her “story has inspired you to give to the Clark Center Scholarship & Grants Fund so that other young, aspiring artists can reach for their dreams.”
Every dollar donated will go towards scholarships for Lucia Mar students continuing their education in the performing arts.
