Lemon Bay Playhouse Awards Three Lemon Bay High School Student Scholarships
Published: June 14, 2018
Ric Goodwin, the Artistic/Production Manager for Lemon Bay Playhouse, presented three scholarships to Lemon Bay High School students this year. A standing ovation goes out to all of our loyal patrons who participated in our 50/50 raffles before each show. Due to your generosity, Lemon Bay Playhouse was able to award $3,000 scholarships to three very deserving Lemon Bay High School seniors at their Senior Awards Night on May 7. The three senior student award winners are Alexis Zarifis, Kyra Mead, and Evan Weinfeld.
Alexis is a 7 Star National Honor Thespian who earned Superior ratings in Vocal Soloist and Duet Acting Performance at a recent State Competition. She is also a talented songwriter, guitarist, and pianist, and is a member of her church’s Praise and Worship Band. Alexis also won a Distinguished Service Award for her student volunteering efforts. She plans to pursue a Bachelor Fine Arts degree in musical theatre at American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City.
Kyra is a talented graphic artist who designed numerous performance posters for performing arts groups at Lemon Bay High School. She is also a member of the Environmental Club, earned a Varsity Letter for the Swim/Dive Team and earned a Student Community Volunteer award for her work with Englewood Animal Rescue Sanctuary (E.A.R.S.). Kyra plans to earn a degree in Graphic Art and Design at the Ringling College of Art and Design.
Evan was very active in the music program at Lemon Bay High School earning Varsity Letters with the Marching Band all four years. He was also a 4-year member of the Symphonic and Jazz Bands and was a “pit musician” in two of the LBHS Theater Department’s musicals. Evan has volunteered for four years as a music tutor mentoring young musicians at L.A. Ainger Middle School. Evan hopes to attend Stetson University in the fall, majoring in business while continuing his passion for music with a minor degree.
We congratulate these three students as they continue to follow their dreams in higher education.
