Musical Theatre West Footlighters scholarships were awarded recently to three Long Beach students who showcased overwhelming talent in the theater arts at their high schools, a release said.
Those students are Bianca Porciuncula, a sophomore at St. Anthony High School, and Amanda Angeles and Mica Ramos, both juniors at Long Beach Poly High School.
“I believe that not only my never-ending love and passion for theater will help me accomplish my goals, but that hard work will also get me there," Porciuncula said in a release.
The Long Beach Unified students were joined by other awardees from Huntington Beach, Irvine, Aliso Viejo and Palos Verdes. Since the the organization's inception in 2005, more than $109,000 has been awarded to high school students from Los Angeles and Orange counties, the release said.
