Drumm, Don and Lisa Endowed Scholarship Fund for the School of Art
As strong advocates and benefactors for arts education, Don and Lisa Drumm demonstrate their support across many areas in the Greater Akron, Ohio, region. For the Drumms, students are a priority, as they have demonstrated by establishing this named scholarship in the School of Art in the College of Fine and Applied Arts.
A scholarship bearing the Drumm name in the School of Art is fitting and appropriate, given Don and Lisa Drumm’s history not only in the local arts community but worldwide. Don Drumm, an internationally recognized sculptor and pioneer craftsman, adopted the sun as his favorite medium, working in aluminum, pewter and other metals. His international reputation is shared by Lisa Drumm, a former teacher and a recognized artist. Together, they have enriched the Northern Ohio Landscape with their artistic endeavors, their community involvement, and their philanthropic activities.
By establishing The Don and Lisa Drumm Endowed Scholarship in The School of Art, it is the Drumms' desire to annually support a graduate(s) of the Akron Public School System who is entering The University of Akron’s School of Art. The selected student(s) must have demonstrated artistic talent and financial need. The selection of the recipient(s) is to be made by the College of Fine and Applied Art, School of Art Faculty Scholarship Committee.
