Joshua Geblein Receives Bill Dorsey Scholarship

The Bill Dorsey Scholarship Fund for the Barbara Ingram School, a component fund of the Community Foundation, selected high school senior Joshua Geblein as this year’s recipient. After winning a People’s Choice Award in 2008, Reverend Janice Dorsey chose to name the endowment established in her honor after her late husband, creating the Bill Dorsey Scholarship. The scholarship provides a grant to a student at the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts (BISFA) to help offset the cost of materials, supplies and other elements directly related to their arts discipline.
