Mildred Colodny Diversity Scholar is historic preservation student Sehila Casper
Sehila Casper (M.F.A. historic preservation student) has been named the 2014 Mildred Colodny Diversity Scholar, awarded by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The scholarship’s aim is to increase diversity in preservation programs in the United States, nurture new perspectives and foster leadership skills. Casper will receive tuition assistance, co-curricular learning opportunities and financial support to attend the National Preservation Conference.
This marks the second time in three years that a SCAD student has been recognized with the award. Dominic Henry (M.A., historic preservation, 2013) received the award in 2012. Henry is currently working with the National Park Service in Los Alamos, New Mexico, where he applies conservation and preservation treatments to Native American ruins at Bandelier National Monument.
