Old Oak Rebekah wins prestigious art scholarship

Oakhill’s top art student in 2017, Rebekah Utian, not only achieved six distinctions for matric last year, and a 92% average for art, but she has also recently been awarded the prestigious art scholarship at Kenyon College, Ohio in the USA. Kenyon College is one of the finest liberal arts colleges in America. Similar to Oakhill in many ways, it is a small school where academic excellence goes hand in hand with a strong sense of community. Rebekah’s scholarship is worth $15,000 per year, renewable for four years. Rebekah will be studying Art History, Arts Management and Journalism and dreams of having her “own articles published in the New York Times and being a curator of an internationally-renowned art gallery, such as MOMA or TATE.” Rebekah also intents to learn Spanish and Italian as soon as possible!

Says Rebekah of her Oakhill experience, “I truly believe a genuine ‘Oakhill experience’ requires a certain level of spunk. The school has so much to offer – what you take from it, is what you can get out of the experience. I will remain proud in saying that my roots are planted in Oakhill soil!”
