Amy Blaker, a student at Seminole State College, has been given the first Paul M. Wegman Scholarship from Seminole State. The award honors the beloved actor Paul Wegman and also the beloved director Sara Daspin, who was Paul’s mentor and helped set up this scholarship.
Wegman died of AIDS in 2004. Daspin, the longtime head of the theater program at what was then Seminole Community College, died of cancer in 2008.
Here’s the full information on the new award:

Here’s an announcement from Paul Luby, at Seminole State College, that has touched me for two reasons. Seminole State’s theater department plans to award the first Paul M. Wegman Scholarship before the curtain rises on Seven Guitars Saturday night, Feb. 5.
A tribute to the late Orlando actor Paul Wegman will be shown free this weekend as part of Gay Days at the Parliament House. To be screened along it will be the comedy short A Day in the Life of Miss Sammy.
Here’s the news from Michael Wanzie:
