Freehold Sisu Scholarship Awarded to Klementina Mellin

Freehold is delighted to announce that Klementina Mellin (pictured left) is the recipient of the 2013 Sisu Scholarship. The scholarship is a merit based ward that provides a full tuition waiver for our advanced training series the Meisner Progression to one student per year who demonstrates the passion, the potential, and the drive to move theater forward and to make a lasting contribution to the community that we serve.

It is funded by generous donors in the name of two of Freehold's most beloved and respected teachers, Jessica Goldstein and Althea Hukari, who both passed away from cancer in 2012. Jessica and Althea devoted their lives to the pursuit of the truth through acting, writing, directing and teaching theater. We honor this devotion with a scholarship that promotes their vision and goals.

Our Scholarship panelists for 2013 included: Faculty members Dan Tierney and Robin Lynn Smith, Board Member Scott Maddock, former Staff member Daniel Morris, and Alumni Chelsea Binta. We will announce auditions for next year’s scholarship in the spring of 2014.
