NAG announces scholarship to graduating NHS senior

The scholarship is available to anyone with demonstrated passion and talent in the field of visual arts who intends to pursue artistic studies at a post-secondary institution.

The scholarship recipient will be selected by Northfield Arts Guild staff.
