The CPCC Visual Arts Department is pleased to announce that the 2015 Visual Arts Outstanding Student award will be presented to Kelly Rambo during the Student Excellence Convocation on Sunday, April 26 at 4:30pm in Halton Theatre. This honor is given to students based upon their academic standing in a program of study; potential for contribution in the field of study; notable work within the community; and personal growth while at CPCC.

An exemplary student in the Associate of Fine Arts program, Ms. Rambo has been active in Visual Arts Club, serving as club president during the 2014-15 academic year.  She is the recipient of a 2015 Study Abroad scholarship to study in Rome and Florence immediately after the Spring semester ends. Additionally, Kelly is currently a gallery assistant in Ross and Pease Galleries at Central Campus, and a frequent volunteer in department events.

Kelly’s work is on display in the Annual Student Exhibition in Pease Gallery and in the BAG gallery (4th floor, library).

Kelly plans to further her education at UNC-Greensboro beginning Fall 2015, and is currently raising funds to support her summer study abroad goals.  If you’d like to support this amazing student, please visit Rambo Study Abroad.

Congratulations to Kelly Rambo on receiving the 2015 Visual Arts Outstanding Student Award, and best wishes in all future endeavors!
