“The catch,” is one of the three photos taken by PCS senior Karen Ruiz that will be included in the art exhibit at Wesleyan this week.
Ruiz to be featured in art exhibit
Karen Ruiz, a Perkins County senior, was selected to show three photographs in the Nebraska Wesleyan University Art Scholarship Event and Exhibit.
“When I first found out that my work had been chosen I got really excited. I had just some bad news beforehand so this cheered me up,” Ruiz said.
“I had been really nervous when I submitted my entry and I’m still kind of nervous. Mostly though I’m happy and hopeful. Having my work chosen means that I get a $4,000 scholarship ($1,000 each year). If I am chosen as one of the top I get a $10,000 scholarship ($2,500 per year). This to me is very helpful since college is very very expensive,” she added.
