In September 2021 Wimberley Arts & Cultural Alliance (WVACA) approved the creation of the Robert Moreman Memorial Scholarship (RMMS) in honor of the late Robert Moreman (1957 - 2020), an active and vibrant member of the Wimberley community.   Scholarships are awarded annually to graduating seniors from Wimberley High School and Katherine Anne Porter School who demonstrate excellence in the creative arts or building trades with plans to pursue higher learning at a college, university or trade school.  Here we feature our winners.  We wish them well on their journey to make the world a better place by focusing their careers in the arts and trades!

"Without the generous scholarship and support of the Wimberley Valley Arts & Cultural Alliance I feel that my first semester would have been much more difficult. I am grateful to have received this scholarship to help fund my education. I hope to use this education to make the world a better place and to contribute one day to others who may have been in my position and need help to further their career. I hope that future graduating students can benefit as much as I have. "   Guy Massey


"The Robert Moreman Scholarship means so much to me, as it has helped me immensely to afford New York University, the school of my dreams. Being an acting student at such a prestigious institute in such a theatrical city has allowed me to fully see what I am capable of. I am living my dreams, and I truly believe that I would not be here without the financial support of WVACA and the Robert Moreman Scholarship."  Jack Garrett
