James wesley white, jr. scholarship recipients

The James “Jay” Wesley White, Jr Scholarship. Jay was a very talented actor, singer and dancer – your typical “triple threat”. Just before he graduated, he performed the title role of our program's 2005 production of “Sweeney Todd: Demon Barber of Fleet Street”.

Jay passed away in February of 2006, a life taken much too soon. His family has started this scholarship in his name.

Past recipients are:


Corrine Natyshak


Kyle Geissler


Christopher Thompson
