2023 Capstone Grant Winners
The East Hampton Arts & Culture Commission has distributed two grants of $250 each to support two East Hampton High School Capstone Projects. The winners will present their projects during a Capstone Fair planned for the end of the school year at East Hampton High School.
The first grant was awarded to East Hampton High School Seniors Eshani Karkun and Kira Roloff, who offered a tennis clinic for East Hampton children in March at the high school tennis courts as a way to share their love of the sport and encourage creativity and health lifestyles. The EHACC funds helped with the purchase of tennis equipment and healthy snacks. Approximately 25 children participated in the clinic.
A second grant was awarded to East Hampton High School Senior Jewel Miranda who formed a non-profit organization to help East Hampton students with anxiety. The EHACC funds helped with the purchase of journals, fidget toys and workshops to provide resources and tools to help students struggling with anxiety.
