The Nancy White Memorial awards:
Presented to two Easton 11th grade students for exceptional accomplishment, creativity, and originality; one in the field of Performing and one in the field of Visual Arts. Nancy White was a founding member of the Easton Arts Council and our first Treasurer. She was a wife, mother, teacher, and painter. We will never forget her beautiful watercolors and her famous baked brie. She passed away from a brain tumor at much too early an age.

 

The Diane Esther Aaron Memorial Awards:
Presented annually to two 8th grade students for exceptional accomplishment, creativity, and originality; one in the field of Performing and one in the field of Visual Arts. Diane was a founding member of the Arts Council. As the personal greeter at our events, she was for many years the face of the arts council. She probably singlehandedly recruited more new members than anyone else due to her enthusiasm and love of the arts. As a master gardener and a floral designer, her sense of color was exceptional. She radiated cordiality and personality, drove folks to doctor appointments and Bible CLass, invited friends and neighbors to her famous teas, and fostered many of the Arts Council initiatives.
