CPHS Alumni Association Scholarships

Theodore Smith Art Scholarship

Ted was very active in Art and Photography while attending CPHS as well as his time after. It was Ted’s wish to become active in the newly formed CPHS Alumni Association but was unable to do so before his passing.¬† With that in mind, his family has decided to start the Ted Smith Art Scholarship. His wife and daughter will be a part of selecting the recipient of the art scholarship from applications received from CPHS students. The Theodore Smith Art Scholarship is a $1,000 scholarship awarded to the student¬† elected by the Ted Smith Art Scholarship committee and will require a digital art work portfolio be submitted.
