Student of School of Drama at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts (EMCVPA), Sashay Scott, is the 2014 recipient of the Roy Hall Memorial Scholarship. Scott was presented with her award, valued at $200,000, by Eloine Hall-Oakley, President of the Roy Hall Scholarship Foundation.
Speaking on why she chose drama as her career, Scott notes, “I see drama as an avenue through which both adults and children can benefit a great deal [through] therapy, problem solving…” She spoke further of her appreciation of the Scholarship and the assistance it provides for future students like herself.
The Scholarship, named in honour of veteran stage actor and TV presenter Roy Hall, is awarded annually to a final year student at EMCVPA enrolled in a full-time Bachelors Degree in the School of Drama. Students must display an exemplary level of talent within the discipline of drama with a minimum GPA of 3.0 or a B average.
