We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why The Capistrano Dispatch is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The Capistrano Dispatch
The Angels for the Arts organization at Saddleback College presented their 2016 Student Success Showcase on May 17 at the McKinney Theatre, featuring an awards ceremony and performances from Angels for the Arts scholarship recipients and recognizing students completing degrees or transferring. Ten students were each presented a $1,000 scholarship for their accomplishments in the arts at Saddleback College. Recipients included two students from San Juan Capistrano, Kimberly Crawford and Alex McDermott.
Kimberly Crawford was honored for her work in cinema/television/radio. She has experience in marketing and advertising and is currently pursuing studies in radio, television and film. The scholarship is allowing her to acquire the necessary equipment to drive her career to new heights by creating quality media geared to cultivate self-awareness.
Alex McDermott was honored for her work in theater arts. She is a musical theater student who starred in Saddleback’s recent production of She Loves Me. She has been a student at Saddleback for two years, which she cites as being the most instrumental years of her educational career so far. McDermott said she has grown as an artist and her growth in the theater and music departments has been transformational.
