RC Thor Scholarship
Created by Woodlawn Theatre, the RC Thor Scholarship provides a local student with a free, one-year scholarship to attend Woodlawn Academy for the Performing Arts.
Named after one of our community's most avid supporter and patron of theater and arts education, the RC Thor Scholarship was founded to assist students who are interested in the arts but may not have the financial means to pursue their passion.
RC Thor was born and raised in New York City by a musical, theatrical family. He spent most of his childhood and high school years singing, dancing, and acting whenever he could. Upon graduating high school and college he spent 12 years in the Army, including an assignment in a Thailand hospital treating our Vietnam War casualties. Theatrically, RC has appeared onstage in well over 100 musical and non-musical productions. He is humbly funding his scholarship to assist other motivated young people to "follow their dream!" Our goal is to continue to fund the RC Thor Scholarship through the Woodlawn Theatre organization.

Rowan Windham Memorial Scholarship Fund
Rowan Jameson Windham was a very special 10-year-old boy who was an active Academy student until he lost his battle with a terminal illness in December of 2016. His passing left all of our staff, students, and teachers that knew him with a heavy heart. Rowan used to always say that he loved the Woodlawn because he felt normal here and his condition never was an issue for him performing on our stage. The Woodlawn Staff and Rowan’s mother Carrie Windham wanted to continue his legacy at the Woodlawn by creating a scholarship program that people could donate to and so that a new aspiring young performer could be sponsored each year.
Please help us celebrate Rowan by donating to this wonderful cause.
