Rocklin, CA (PRWEB) September 04, 2014
Sierra College students who attend the Rocklin campus are being treated to a high caliber visual experience in the student lounge where they relax and restore for their next class. Through the generous donation from the Hallberg Family, a scholarship fund has been established to promote the arts, "The Hallberg Merit Award Scholarships". An art exhibit is located in the Rocklin Campus Center (Cafeteria, Building J) which annually features Sierra College students who have won scholarships for their excellence and dedication to their chosen mediums. This student center gallery space allows visitors to discover and view the talent and discipline of their fellow students.
This year's recipients of the Hallberg awards are:
