We’re very proud to present the 2017 Inverted Arts Scholarship to Hope Academy graduate Shevon Greene. This scholarship award provides $2,500/year for up to four years of study. Shevon has been a part of the Inverted Arts Summer Art Exploration Program at Hope for seven years – that’s every year we’ve offered it! She was a student in the program through middle school, an intern all through high school, and now will be the assistant Artist Mentor for the music class June 12 – July 7, 2017. Shevon is a remarkable and talented student who will be continuing her studies as a Music Therapy major at Augsburg College in the fall.
Shevon was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and has considered music to be her passion for her entire life. She has attended Hope Academy since Kindergarten and loves spending time with her close friends and family. She has also been apart of Inverted Arts for the past seven years. One of her favorite hobbies is singing, and has performed for Hope Academy and Inverted Arts multiple times before. Shevon has persevered throughout her schoolwork while taking care of her younger brother, Matthew, who was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 3. She will be attending Augsburg University in the Fall of 2017 and is planning on studying Music Therapy. Matthew’s love for music and music therapy is one of the main reasons why she has decided to go into this field, and she is immensely joyful and ecstatic about the future!
