SCAL Alex Alampi Award for Excellence in Art
Winner Announced for 2020
This year’s winner is Gabrielle (Gaby) Williams, a Penns Grove High School graduate, who plans to pursue a degree in animation at the Savannah College of Art and Design. She will head to Georgia for winter semester at the Atlanta campus.
Gaby says that art has always been there for her and in her junior year of high school it became clear to her what she wanted to do with the rest of her life - animation. She would love to one day open a black-woman owned animation studio. Gaby plans to work on her education and learn more history. She feels it is hard for a person to grow mentally and artistically without an education. She would also like to have a chance to become more involved in underrepresented communities. While attending Penns Grove High School, she noticed how much a little encouragement can push people a long way in the right direction.
