Cadman Family Launches Arts Scholarship

The Youngstown Foundation today announced that the Cadman Family
Memorial Scholarship, a new scholarship program focused on the arts, has awarded a
total of $5,000 in scholarships to two local students.

This first-of-its-kind scholarship program supports Austintown Fitch graduating seniors
who wish to continue and further training in dance or musical theater arts at the
collegiate level.

By completing an application, interview and audition process, students earned chances
for scholarships ranging from $500 to $2,500. The scholarships will be presented at the
May 18 Austintown Fitch High School Class of 2023 Scholarship Awards Assembly.

“Austintown students and families depend upon the generosity of outside organizations
such as the Cadman Family Memorial Scholarship to help make their dream of college
education easier to attain,” said Amanda Krygowski, counselor in the Austintown Fitch
Guidance Department. “We are so proud of our talented students who were selected
as scholarship recipients.”

Larry and Linda Cadman established the Cadman Family Memorial Scholarship at
the Youngstown Foundation in January. Larry Cadman, a 1962 Austintown Fitch
graduate, dedicated the scholarship to the memory of his sisters Nian Cadman (Class
’60) and Terry Cadman (Class ’64). Prior to her death last year, Nian was nationally
renowned as a professional dancer and instructor. Terry was an elite gymnast who
operated a local gymnastics academy.

“I know that my sisters would be thrilled to have their legacy empower and sustain the
artistic community in Austintown,” said Larry Cadman.

Austintown Fitch juniors and seniors engaged in dance, musical theater or the
performing arts should visit the Guidance Office to learn more about
the scholarship program.
