College of Fine and Performing Arts Dean Kit Spicer presented theatre student Margaret 'Meg' McGuigan with the Western Washington University Presidential Scholar's Award Tuesday, May 13, 2014.
Nominees must be graduating seniors who: are accomplished scholars; have demonstrated success in furthering multicultural programs and activities; and have achieved levels of service to the community that have benefited their peers, their departments, and the community.
One award is granted per college. The Dean nominates candidates based upon recommendations from the faculty, in accordance with customary college practice.
Meg's scholarship is meticulous, and surpasses expectations in her critical thinking, application of knowledge, and ability to engage in thoughtful dialogue. Among her latest projects were costumes and headwear for 'Equus' and the scenic design for the world-premier of Jeff Augustin's CORKTOWN, directed by Rich Brown.
Meg has studied abroad in London, and contributed her talents in Bellingham at the Taproot Theatre and the Mt. Baker Theatre. She's accepted an internship in Scenic Design at B Street Theatre in Sacramento.
