The EPAC Devin Spears Memorial Scholarship was established to honor the memory of Devin Spears, a member of the EPAC Kids Theater Workshop who starred as Dorothy in the workshop's 2001 production of "The Wiz." Devin and her mother Valerie were tragically killed in 2002. Many thanks to all who assisted in this year's fundraising event! Since its inception, the EPAC Devin Spears Scholarship Fund has awarded over $42,500 in scholarships to graduating high school seniors. "It's very gratifying to be able to help the young people of our community pursue their dreams," says EPAC Director Patrick Foti. "It's just another way that illustrates how community theater helps make our community a better place to live. Our heartiest congratulations go out to the recipients."
General Operating Support is provided to the Endicott Performing Arts Center by a grant from the Broome County Arts Council's United Cultural Fund.
