VOCAREER.COM has named GINA MARIE ERICKSON as the first recipient of the CHUCK RILEY Memorial Scholarship. The honor, given at the VOICE 2010 CONFERENCE in LOS ANGELES, awards a scholarship to an aspiring voice artist without the means to otherwise afford to begin a career in voiceover acting.
After reviewing dozens of applications, ERICKSON was the overwhelming choice of the selection committee. "We could not have found a more deserving applicant to honor CHUCK’s memory and give back to the industry we love so much," VOCAREER.COM Pres. ADAM GOODMAN stated.
The Scholarship includes coaching, books and career guidance from the members of VOCareer.com, as well as almost $10,000 in career resources. "VOCAREER.COM’s generosity warms my heart," ERICKSON said. "This opportunity is a blessing I am truly humbled to receive."
