BRYAN ALCOX of Millville has been awarded $2,500 from The Downtown Millville Merchants Association’s James F. Penland Art Scholarship Fund in memory of local artist and community activist James F. Penland.

“I am thrilled to be honored by the Downtown Millville Merchants Association with this generous scholarship,” said 2014 Millville High School Graduate Alcox. “This money will be very helpful next year as I start art school.”

Alcox has been accepted at Rutgers, New Brunswick and is enrolled in the Art Program there for the 2014-2015 scholastic year beginning in September. He hopes to pursue a career in Fine Arts.

The scholarship was established by the DMMA to honor the late artist James F. Penland, its first President and tireless advocate of Mill-ville's Arts District. It was under the enthusiastic leadership of Mr. Penland that the organization was formed and operated the highly successful annual Downtown Millville Arts Antiques and Music Festival from 2008 until 2013.
