ULM student earns International Art Fraternity Scholarship

Robert Jones of Monroe, a senior sculpture and graphic design major at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, recently received the Kappa Pi International Honorary Art Fraternity Scholarship.

Jones is the first ULM winner in the competition in five years.
Winning the scholarship against other national competitors is a great compliment to ULM and the Division of Art Faculty, according to Associate Professor and Chapter Faculty Advisor Clifford Tresner.

“It shows the level of scholarship expected of students from our small department, and that ULM students demonstrate creativity and talent comparable to that of other universities, many with a larger facility and faculty,” he said.

Jones submitted four sculptures and one drawing for consideration. Those pieces will be highlighted in the spring edition of Kappa Pi Fraternity’s International member magazine “The Sketchbook.”

Kappa Pi International President Ron Koehler commented that the scholarship committee was “very impressed with the work submitted by Robert Jones."

Jones said, “it's always a great feeling to be receive some success in the field you're passionate about. It's even better to have someone who is passionate about your success.”
