The Institute of the Arts (IOA) has announced the winners of its 1999 scholarships in Art Studio, Dance, Theater, and Visual Information Technologies (VIT).

The Art Studio scholarship was presented to Taipei native Woody Chow, whose sculptures adorn the Fairfax Campus. The Division of Dance honored two students, freshmen Rita Donahue and Elizabeth Reynolds, for their outstanding accomplishments during the 1998-99 academic year. Christine Lange and Steve Tipton are the Theater Division’s award winners. Lange serves as assistant stage manager for the Theater of the First Amendment production, The Sins of Sor Juana, and Tipton’s accomplishments include completion of a three-week course in musical theater with the Broadway Theatre Project in Tampa, Fla. The Theater Division also acknowledges Erik Waller as the winner of its 1999 departmental award. VIT recipients Marnie Montgomery and Bill Vitucci continue to hone their technical knowledge through project management for the division’s Internet Multimedia Center.

The scholarships are part of an endowment created by Central Fidelity Bank several years ago. Central Fidelity sponsored the popular speaker’s series that featured luminaries in broadcasting, entertainment, and politics on the Fairfax Campus to enrich the IOA scholarship fund.
