|DONATE TO THE UWS MARY STRAIGHT SCHOLARSHIP FUND|
Mary Jane Wright Straight passed away on November 20, 2012. She was a dedicated art teacher, mentor, friend, and contributor to the Utah Watercolor Society.
The Utah Watercolor Society awards two scholarships to Utah high school students each year. Winners are selected from those students who are accepted to the annual Springville Museum of Art High School Art Show.
In honor of Mary’s memory, the UWS has named our Scholarship Fund for her.
A good way to remember Mary’s legacy and to encourage continued education in the arts is to contribute to the scholarship fund.
