Paul S. Hyde

Paul S. Hyde was an educator and teacher all his life, serving 45 years as a professional educator and living 86 years as a guiding, questioning teacher. When he passed away in April of 1997, he bequeathed a scholarship in his name to the Salisbury Wicomico Arts Council to support young performers and playwrights.

The purpose of the Paul S. Hyde Scholarship Award is to recognize and financially assist talented young artists from this region who are pursuing academic careers in the performing arts or in playwriting. High school seniors or college students who will be or are graduates from a Wicomico public school, and are residents of Wicomico County are eligible.

The Paul S. Hyde Scholarship Fund resides with the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore. This enables the fund to receive professional financial management, greater community visibility, and still allow the Arts Council to determine the recipients of the annual scholarship.

Herbert D. Brent

In 1982, the Salisbury Wicomico Arts Council decided to honor the late Herbert D. Brent, a Salisbury businessman who was known for his support and dedication to the arts, by raising funds to create a scholarship fund in his name. The purpose of the Herbert D. Brent Arts Scholarship Award is to recognize and financially assist talented young artists from this county who are pursuing academic careers in the arts.

The first scholarship award was given out in 1983 and since then there have been 62 scholarships awarded to 29 performing artists, 29 visual artists, and 4 literary artists.

In the fall of 1991, the Arts Council placed the Herbert D. Brent Scholarship Fund at Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore. This enables the fund to receive professional financial management, greater community visibility, and still allow the Arts Council to determine the recipients of the annual scholarship fund.
