The Daniel Copley Temple Memorial Scholarship
Two scholarships, of $1000 each, are to be awarded to graduating seniors who will be continuing their education at a college or trade school. Seniors who have been part of the PCA family and applied their talents in support of our shows are eligible to apply.
Our goal is to recognize students who are examples of Daniel's perseverance and hard work, his love and mentoring those around him, and his propensity to serve anyone in need.
2019 Scholarship Awards Announced!
The Temple Family and PCA are pleased to announce that graduating seniors,
Abs Thompson and Laura Greco
have been selected to receive the first Daniel Copley Temple Memorial Scholarships in the amount of $1000.
Both Abs and Laura have been involved in PCA since its founding.
Abs has provided wonderful performances as an Actor in multiple shows including in the role of Jo in Little Women. She also has served backstage and was Student Director for Shrek the Musical. She has actively mentored younger kids in PCA including at the PCA Summer Camp. Abs has also been actively involved in community service including New York Service Learning (NYSL) among others.
Laura has been a part of all six PCA shows. While her contributions have been out of the spotlight she has insured that the spotlight was where it need to be as PCA’s lighting expert running all the lights for every show. She has also served her community through organizations such as Best Buddies and Giving Tree. In addition Laura has tutored several people in different subjects throughout her high school years; always focused on helping others realize their full potential.
Abs and Laura both exemplify the attributes of our son Dan Temple whose memory we honor with these awards: They are service oriented, passionate in pursuing their talents, contributors to their community, and compassionate mentors.
We also want to thank all the seniors who submitted applications and wish them all success in their college studies.
