Emilee Daves Memorial Art Scholarship

In 2021, Miss Emilee Daves lost her life through a tragic, senseless act of violence. Emilee was a beloved daughter, sister, granddaughter and friend. She was a senior in high school, with dreams of furthering her education and studying art. She loved and enjoyed drawing and the beauty of art. Emilee's grandparents, Steve Kittrell and Carolyn DeVincenzi Kittrell, are Hollister High School Class of 1977 graduates.

The Class of 1977 Scholarship committee created this scholarship to help a deserving Hollister High School art student pursue their dream in art studies in memory and honor of Emilee.
