The mission of Youtheatre is to create an inclusive environment in which to inspire and enrich the lives of all youth, regardless of income or ability, by providing educational opportunities and promoting appreciation of the arts. First established by the Board of The Arts Partnership and now perpetuated by Marathon Center for the Performing Arts, this scholarship seeks to recognize students involved in the Youtheatre program as they graduate and move into a higher education institution in the subsequent year.

Marianna L. Hofer loved the arts, those who create it, and our Findlay community. Therefore, it is no surprise that prior to her untimely death in May 2017, she requested that an endowment fund be established to support the artists in our community.
Marianna taught writing at the University of Findlay for 32 years and was dedicated to her classroom and her students. Marianna’s life outside the classroom was lived for art. She loved being at her studio in the Jones Building, sharing space with other artists. She especially enjoyed the spring and fall Art Walk, where she could share her talents and promote local art and artists. Marianna was an avid photographer, preferring older cameras exclusively using black and white film. She had a keen eye and was a talented art photographer, but her true passion was poetry.
