Wanda Ewing Memorial Scholarship Recipient
by Nicholas Clark
I began in Springfield, Missouri and followed my father’s career to Denver, before settling home in Omaha. It’s been a great place to grow up with consistent opportunities for my education. Day to day, I am my younger brother’s full-time caregiver. He requires assistance in every facet of living because of a severe brain and spine injury that occurred as an infant. Yet, he’s continued to endure and share a contagious smile for almost twenty years. Much of my work is inspired by him and the way that trauma has sculpted both of our lives to date.

I was immensely honored to receive the Wanda Ewing Memorial Scholarship in May of 2015. I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art and a Minor in both Art History and Marketing from the University of Nebraska at Omaha and was the first person in my family to earn a college degree.
The Art Department at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, announced the creation of the Wanda Ewing Memorial Scholarship, to be given out annually to an incoming art student.
Applications for the first scholarship to be awarded for the 2015-16 academic year, will be accepted through March 2, 2015. You can learn more about applying for the scholarship here.
