The Anacortes Rotary, with the generous support of Mark and Janette Lione, was pleased to offer a scholarship honoring award-winning Puget Sound artist Jennifer Bowman at the ASF Scholarship Ceremony on June 6, 2023. The scholarship is new this year and was offered as part of a live auction item during the club's  "Thriller" fall fundraiser. Jennifer has exhibited professionally for 30 years. Her works appear in private, public, and corporate collections, nationally and internationally, and in various publications and posters. Mark and Jennifer presented the award to Kayla Strandberg.   
Kayla's passion for learning led her to become a sailor (all four years of high school), an award-winning filmmaker, and a skier. Next year at Smith College, she hopes to combine her two loves -- film and architecture-- and design her own major. Art teacher Carl Dellutri says that Kayla seems to "tackle every challenge in life with the same drive she has for art. The more daunting the task, the more determined she becomes. And she always remains cheerful."
