The Betty Vaughn Art Scholarship

MAA is excited to launch The Betty Vaughn Art Scholarship to a McIntosh student pursuing higher education in the field of Visual Arts.

This year’s $1000 recipient is Miss Bre’Onna Armstrong, a 2020 graduate of MCA.  Bre is attending Coastal College with plans to finish up at SCAD with an animation degree.  We are excited to be able to give back to our community through lifting up a young artist, as well as being able to honor Betty, who has given so much to MAA throughout the years!
