The East Hampton Arts & Culture Commission (EHACC) has awarded East Hampton High School Senior Luke Rempe a $200 grant to support his Capstone Project, a multifaceted assignment that serves as a culminating academic and intellectual experience for students. Capstone projects may take a wide variety of forms that culminate in a final product, presentation, or performance.

For his project, Luke has chosen to film a horror movie based around the Blair Witch franchise, which features a sheriff deputy searching for a missing person in the state forest. Luke's objective is to produce a well acted and interesting movie with actors using improv techniques. The grant funds will help defray the costs of props and equipment. His film will be featured at the annual Capstone Exhibit hosted by East Hampton High School before the end of the school year and posted on YouTube. Congratulations Luke!

The EHACC offers the Capstone Grant annually and any East Hampton High School Junior or Senior is welcome to apply. www.artsforeasthamptonct.org for information on the program, which will be available again next year.

The East Hampton Arts & Culture Commission (EHACC)  has awarded East Hampton High School Senior Brendan Owen a $200 grant to support his Capstone Project, a multifaceted assignment that serves as a culminating academic and intellectual experience for students. Capstone projects may take a wide variety of forms including a long-term investigative project that culminates in a final product, presentation, or performance. For his project, Brendan will purchase reusable bamboo utensils for this year's East Hampton High School Freshman Class to help decrease the carbon footprint and increase sustainability in the East Hampton Public School system. Through research, Brendan learned that thousands of pieces of plastic utensils are used and thrown away at the high school each month. He said he hopes the school district will consider switching entirely to metal silverware. The EHACC was very impressed with Brendan's passion for the environment and desire to preserve the planet for future generations. The grant money will help pay for the bamboo utensil sets and Brendan's ideas will be presented during the annual Capstone Exhibit hosted by East Hampton High School before the end of the school year. Congratulations Brendan!
