"It is one thing to have an excellent idea. It is an altogether different skill to take that great idea and bring it fruition. Ms. Scurlock worked tirelessly to make the Screen Arts Student Festival a reality. She garnered the support of students, parents, the administration and community sponsors and she organized this monumental task into a series of manageable goals." Colleague
