Sun Valley Museum of Art (SVMOA) has announced its 2020 recipients of arts and humanities scholarships.
The 24 scholarships awarded by SVMOA fall into five different categories, each allowing Blaine County students and educators to expand their education in arts and humanities.
Honored were students and teachers from Hailey’s Wood River High School and The Sage School, Carey High School and Sun Valley Community School.
This year’s scholarship program directed by SVMOA Art Therapist and Enrichment Educator Jordyn Dooley extended the Museum’s overall scholarship total since 1998 to nearly $1 million in local grants.

WRHS’s Jennifer Jordan earned the Gay V. Weake Scholarship that honors the past SVMOA executive director and is given to students serious about pursuing art in college.
Honorary scholarship winners for the Weake grant were Emma Pulleiro of WRHS, Jasper Mott of SVCS and Geneva Dupuis of WRHS.
