BOLIVAR, Mo. — Alyssa May, a sophomore from Raymore, was one of eight art students awarded a scholarship for the 2017-18 academic year based on works she produced for Southwest Baptist University’s recent scholarship show held in the Driskill Art Gallery on the Bolivar campus.

Students chose pieces to submit for viewing, which were considered for scholarships based on their skills as an artist, presentation of work and work ethic. SBU art department instructors evaluated all submitted pieces to determine the scholarship for each student. The students were also responsible for hanging the show, as well preparing their work for the show.
