Drake Edwards Memorial Portrait Scholarship: This scholarship is being awarded based on character.
Class of 2015 Recipient – Matthew Koczian
Class of 2014 Recipient – Drew Minter
Drake Edwards LOVED LIFE and his energy was infectious. Drake left us too soon, at age 20, on December 23, 2012. Drake was a friend, client, and Rep for Picture this Photography. His zest for life, character, and passions have inspired Picture This Photography to honor him, his spirit of love and giving by creating a portrait scholarship beginning with the Class of 2014.
Drake lived a life of ACTION through his involvement in snowboarding, leadership, skateboarding, church, camp counseling, music, and student body. He always led with joy. His love of guitar, banjo, song and rap all were just some of the ways he expressed himself.
Drake defined the words kindness, heart, compassion, and fun.
The goal of this scholarship is to share love, through my art, much like Drake chose to do on a daily basis. It is a way to honor Drake and to share Picture This Photography’s gifts with a deserving person; someone that goes beyond to help others.
The winner of the portrait scholarship will be chosen by a panel with members from Picture This Photography, a community member and the Edwards family.
