Another National Scholarship Winner at The Animation Academy

Postby Charles » Wed Jan 05, 2011 1:35 pm

In 2007, the year of the very first Warner Bros Hanna Barbera Scholarship it was Kris Anka.

In 2008, the year of the second Warner Bros Hanna Barbera Scholarship, it was Nelson Boles.

In 2010 / 2011, it's Margot Akopov, the winner of the Hank Aaron Chasing The Dream Scholarship!

This is a national scholarship awarded by Major League Baseball.

I first met Margo in 2009 at the Burbank Boys and Girls Club. She was a winner for a contest that Cartoon Network sponsored. Through the Club, she applied for this scholarship so she could study at the Academy.

I found out on Monday that she won!

She'll be attending classes at the Academy for a year.

We have another emerging superstar in Margot, and another Grand Slam.

Congratulations Margot, and thank you Major League Baseball and The Boys and Girls Club for your support of kids and the pursuit of their dreams.

Keep Creating!
