Coeur d'Alene Art Association awards scholarship to NIC student

North Idaho College student Laura James was recently awarded a $300 scholarship from the Coeur d’Alene Art Association, a local community art club.
James is a fine arts major from Hayden. She expects to graduate from NIC in December and hopes to enroll at the University of Idaho in the fall of 2007. There she plans to double major in fine arts and business and hopes to someday own an outdoor gear shop with an art gallery inside.
“Art is an expensive major because you have to buy your own art supplies, which aren’t cheap,” James said. “So this scholarship will help with that.”
The Coeur d’Alene Art Association awards scholarships of varying amounts to students twice per year. A scholarship fund was established about five years ago and each year the volunteer board and members add to that fund with various fundraisers.
