​2018 Scholarship Recipients


The North Wind Quilters Guild of Fairfield recently awarded their 2018 Art Scholarships to two high school graduates from surrounding counties.  The Seniors are:Kahalla Bandy-Pasibe from  Vallejo, who will be attending CSU Berkely, and Keeley Stonefrom Winters.


Kahalla Bandy-Pasibe will be attending UC Berkeley where she intends to persue a degree in the arts. In addition to painting and
drawing, Kahalla’s work in high school included photography, mixed media, sculpture, graphic design, costume and makeup design, and drama performance.


Keeley Stone has been accepted at UC Santa Barbara. Her goal is to pursue a career in music video editing, including making visuals to songs.

 
Both students were active in their school government and community activities, as well as attaining high Grade Point Averages all four years in high school.

These deserving recipients were chosen on their achievements in high academic scores throughout their high school record, their leadership endeavors, and involvement in community service.  Each one plans to pursue careers in the art related field which they have chosen.

The North Wind Quilters promotes and strongly supports students' educational goals in the arts.  Funding for this program comes from yearly fundraisers of beautiful handmade quilts made by its members.  The Guild is proud of this year's recipients.  They presented themselves before the membership as mature, articulate and exceptional young people.  They are to be congratulated and wished success in all their future endeavors.
