The Loveland Stage Company has awarded its 2019 Scholarship Winners!
Creative Arts Scholarship – Gabe Schmidt
Gabe Schmidt, a 2019 graduate of Cincinnati Christian Hills Academy, is the recipient of the $1000 Loveland Stage Company Creative Arts Scholarship for 2019. He will be attending DePaul University to study Film Production.
Gabe was involved in the drama program at CHCA, and you may have seen him around the area as an LYSA soccer referee or delivering your Loveland Herald. Gabe began making stop-motion animation films as a hobby when he was 10, combining his love of superheroes and Legos. His passion turned more serious as he posted videos to YouTube and eventually started entering film contests. Overall, 6 of Gabe’s films have won awards and he has posted big wins in 13 different contests. You can find his films, including his most recent award winners – How to Make a Movie and Heroic – on YouTube.
We wish Gabe the best of luck in his future in endeavors and many more award winners.
Knapp Memorial Scholarship Winner – Molly Shilling
Molly Shilling is the recipient of this $1000 scholarship. She is a 2017 graduate of Loveland High School who has just finished her sophomore year at Pennsylvania State University. She originally intended to study Forensic Chemistry but discovered a new passion in college when an internship with the athletic department put her behind the cameras and running graphics for televising the games. She has changed her field of study to a double major in Telecommunications and English, concentration in Creative Writing, combining her love for writing and finding her comfort zone in television media rooms and studios. Molly participated in 9 productions here at LSC and says she can still remember the first time Glenna gave her a headset to wear. Now it’s a regular staple of her fashion ensemble.
We wish Molly the best of luck in her future studies and hope her summer internship in New York is a great experience.
