Arlene Black Mollo Scholarship Fund
Provides scholarship assistance to students in the Art department with preference given to female students in studio art, particularly watercolors.
The net proceeds from the sale of paintings will be donated to Emmanuel College’s Arlene Black Mollo Scholarship Fund. The scholarship will provide assistance to students in the Art department with preference given to female students in studio art, particularly watercolors. Students receiving awards from the Fund shall be advised of the history and facts of this award and shall be known publicly as The Arlene Black Mollo Scholars.
Our first scholarship recipient is a dual major in Art Studio and Art Therapy. The recipient shared, “I have always had an interest in helping people and art. When I saw that Emmanuel was offering an Art Therapy Program, my lifelong relationship with art came knocking. Saying it was fate is an understatement.” This award provided a financial cushion for her family and will help her to complete her education at Emmanuel.
Arlene’s family chose to honor Arlene’s legacy in this manner for several reasons. First and foremost, Arlene was an avid lifetime learner and believed in giving back to the institutions that helped propel her to become a very successful educator and watercolorist. Further, Arlene herself, a top student throughout her academic career, was the recipient of generous scholarships and grants that allowed her to complete her education. Arlene would be humbled and honored knowing that her beautiful paintings could aid and inspire the next generation of artists.
