Wimberley Valley Arts and Cultural Alliance (WVACA) presented the Robert Moreman Memorial Scholarships to three extremely deserving 2023 graduating seniors at the Wimberley High School Awards Ceremony on Thursday, May 11, 2023. WVACA president, Carl Rabenaldt, and scholarship committee chair, Dede Taylor, joined Robert Moreman’s wife, Cathy Moreman, to present the $15,000 one-time awards. Congratulations to these inspiring young people, who have all been accepted to top universities in their fields starting this fall.
WVACA created the Robert Moreman Memorial Scholarship Fund to honor the memory of Robert Moreman, an active participant in this organization, which was founded in 2013 by Cathy Moreman when she was director of the Wimberley Valley Chamber of Commerce. The scholarship is intended for graduating seniors from Wimberley high schools (WHS and KAPS), who demonstrate unusual accomplishment and professional commitment in one of WVACA’s four creative pillars: performing, visual, literary and culinary arts, or – in recognition of Robert’s profession – crafters and makers in the building and related trades.
