In memory of Steve Chesley
Steve Chesley helped to start the ceramics program at the CMC Rifle Campus over 30 years ago and continued instructing pottery there until his death. Although Steve loved all art, ceramics truly was his passion. He enjoyed assisting students of all levels but especially liked helping students who were just beginning to explore their interest in the arts. Steve tragically passed away in a mountain bike accident in the Fall of 2011. He never felt age should prevent anyone from exploring his or her passions, mentally or physically and was extremely active throughout his entire life. His family hopes this scholarship will be able to assist a student who is excited to explore his or her artistic ability.
