Denise Keeley Memorial Scholarship
After her eighth and last child graduated from college, Denise M. Keeley returned to the classroom, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Siena Heights in 1988. A sculptor whose stone carvings explored women’s issues, Denise co-founded the Lenawee Council for the Visual Arts. She received the Alumni Association’s Recent Graduate Award in 2001.
The scholarship was created in Denise’s memory by her family, to reward a deserving woman who, like her, was a non-traditional art student.
The scholarship is awarded to women with preference given to non-traditional art students over the age of 23. The student must demonstrate financial need and remain in good academic standing.
