Student Ambassasor Brigitte Errickson, Fine Art major from Changewater, NJ, and the Warren County Technical School, laughs out load at almost anything. “I am very easily amused. I absolutely adore puns and wordplay.”

As she was searching for colleges, PCA&D was the only college she looked at that was specifically an art school, and she liked how focused it was. “I also was really attracted to the small size, and I really like that I can get the help I need in class.”

In Leah's Senior Studio: Rick Price, Jackie Price, Megan Price, Leah Walt, Jacob Price, Jordan Price, and Evelyn, Sophia and Mason Price.

"It would be hard to explain the kind of person Mom was, but the person who would understand would be an artist," said Jordan Price, son of the late Cynthia Price. 

 J. Richard "Rick" Price and his two sons Jacob and Jordan, along with their families, created the Cynthia E. Price Memorial Scholarship, a one-time scholarship for the 2017-18 academic year, to remember her, an artist and craftswoman who worked, lived, and loved in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.  

Leah Walt, a PCA&D Senior Fine Art student, was the recipient of the scholarship. She expressed gratitude for the family's effort in making her collegiate dreams easier during an opportunity to give the entire Price family a tour of PCA&D.
