- School: Salem High School
- College she is attending in the fall: Boston University
After review of her impressive artistic talent and skills, Dan and Matt Beaulieu, the sons of the artist for which this scholarship was established, felt Camryn was especially deserving of this scholarship.
At 4PM on Sunday, 25 June Camryn Connolly was presented with her Scholarship check for $1,000 by the Beaulieu brothers. The Salem Arts has hosted this event for several years and is proud to once again facilitate the award of the Beaulieu Scholarship to a Salem High school senior.
Camryn has been very active during her high school years with sports, peer mentoring for freshman entering High school and the National Art Society, among many other worthwhile endeavors. As Camryn enters the arts at Boston University this fall we are sure she will quickly set herself apart with her artistic pursuits.
The Paula Beaulieu Scholarship was established by the Beaulieu family in honor of their late mother. Mrs. Beaulieu was an artist and art teacher in the Salem and Reading school systems. Along with the scholarship, Dan and Matt Beaulieu, Paula’s sons, will be presenting Camryn with a check for $1,000.
The Paula Beaulieu Scholarship is a perpetual one, which is awarded each year for $1,000 to a student pursuing the visual arts either through a university program or through an art school. All of the visual arts will be considered. Paula Beaulieu was an active artist in the Salem Arts Association and taught young and old alike through her program “Connect with Their Creativity.” Her family has chosen Salem Arts Association and Salem High School as beneficiaries of any donations made in her honor.
The Salem Arts congratulates Camryn and wishes her great success. More information can be found on the Salem Arts Website. http://www.salemartsassociation.org/
