Congratulations to two Nossi College of Art Kappa Pi members!
We had one student and one alumnus recognized by the Kappa Pi International Art Society as 2019 scholarship recipients!|
Kappa Pi is a student-empowering organization providing peers with opportunities to create relationships, build character and foster career development. Students are invited to join based on academic success in their degree program of study. Kappa Pi students become leaders on their campus by planning events, activities and opportunities to engage the entire student body.
Nossi College of Art’s chapter, Eta Tau, saw several members apply for various scholarships unique to active Kappa Pi members, ranging from $200 – $1,000.
Kappa Pi Event Highlights:
• Help Sponsors Halloween since 2017
• Kappa Picks – Art contest hosted every semester showcasing student work
• Sponsored Summer Cookout – Hot Dog, (Cheese) Burgers and Veggie Burgers + drinks and desserts
• Initiations inviting students to encounter new experiences
Sean Williams and Ashley Le-ann McIntosh were awarded and received the scholarships after submitting letters of recommendation and artwork from their portfolio. Submissions are accepted by Kappa Pi in the fall semesters of each school year. Winning scholarship members are featured in the Kappa Pi Sketchbook.
The Kappa Pi Sketchbook is a yearly publication mailed to hundreds of Kappa Pi chapters across the country. This magazine features the winners of the scholarship, their artwork as well as significant news from Kappa Pi chapters.

Ashley Le-Anne McIntosh (On Instagram!) won a New Initiate Scholarship and had her name and artwork featured in the magazine. When asked about earning the scholarship, she said it felt affirming to know her piece received recognition. This was one of her personal favorites.
Ashley is the current President of Nossi’s Kappa Pi chapter. She is joined by Stephanie Young as Vice President. Ashley is excited to get the new semester underway and recently changed her degree program from Graphic Design to Video & Film. She looks forward to filming events such as music festivals and Kappa events to help document what the group does.
Our second scholarship recipient, Sean Williams, recently graduated with a B.G.A. in Commercial Illustration. He earned Kappa Pi’s Graduating Senior Scholarship and had four pieces featured in the magazine including one prominent placement on page 5! Sean is a past President for Kappa Pi and an active alumnus member.
Since graduating, Sean has been busy establishing a small business, Headdy Hardware, where he offers personally designed interior decorations and furniture as well as illustrations for posters, books and concert art designs.
