The Heritage Arts Center Association (HACA) produces “Spotlight on Talent,” a regional performing arts competition for young students up to high school seniors. There are $4,000 in prizes and trophies, in addition to a $1,000 Pasco Heritage Scholarship.
This year, the scholarship was awarded to Faith Phaller, a Blackwood Studios dancer.
Heritage Arts also gives the Nereim Visual Arts Award to aspiring artists, in honor of the late founding board members Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Nereim.
Erin Caffarelli, a graduating senior at Zephyrhills High, was selected for this recognition. She shared her sculpture of a dramatic fox-like creature — realistic but completely imaginary — with the HACA Board. Her work can be viewed on Heritage Art’s Facebook page, as well as its website at HeritageArts.org.
Caffarelli will attend Pasco-Hernando State College and plans to study mechanical engineering and robotics at Florida Polytechnic.
