Ami Scherson

Ami Scherson is a junior studying Music (B.A.) through the Honors Tutorial College. A Margaret Boyd Scholar, Ami sings in the Choral Union, is a mentor for the Young Women's Leaders Program and is the secretary of the International Student Union. She developed an interest in arts administration and arts policy early on, leading to internships with the Center for Arts-Inspired Learning, Stuart's Opera House, and the Cleveland Orchestra. Ami's primary focuses within Arts Administration are Education and Community Outreach. 

In Her Own Words:

I am interested in the impact nonprofit arts organizations have on rural communities, specifically Appalachia. I will be working with  organizations who use creative placemaking to create social change in their local areas. I am specifically interested about changes in health, economy and education of these areas.

I was accepted in the Diversity in the Arts Leadership Program hosted by Americans for the Arts. Through this internship, I will be placed with a nonprofit organization, be given a professional mentor, and attend workshops about how to become an influential leader in the arts field. This prestigious 10 week program will teach students how to create cultural equity within the organizations and communities they will work in the future.”
