Two Sun Valley Community School students are recipients for the American Society of Composers and Publishers Scholarship.

Sophmore Ethan Hunt and freshman Emma Desserault performed for the Jerry Herman Broadway Legacy at the Argyos Theater.

They were joined by professional Broadway actors. After the performance, Hunt and Desserault were awarded the scholarship.

"It was kind of like a validation that like all of our hard work that I put in had really paid off," Dessarault said. "It was completely surreal just to be on stage with these people."

"It was just great to sit in music rehearsals and watch them do their thing," Hunt said.

Hunt said he plans to use the scholarship funds for an acting camp in New York and Dessarault is planning to put it toward a trip to study acting in London.

Both students are part of the Sun Valley Community School's Creative Arts Academy.
