Victoria Storm Earns Pair of Scholarships


Anderson, Ind. — Victoria Storm ‘24, a visual communication and public relations double major at Anderson University, recently earned a pair of scholarships. Storm earned both the Noffsinger and Talbot scholarships.

“Being selected as the recipient of the Talbot and Noffsinger scholarships is a true honor,” said Storm. “There is no doubt that the recognition has provided me with a boost of confidence and a fulfilling sense of support in the value of my commitment to art and design.”

The Indiana Craftsman/Talbot Street Art Fair Award is awarded to one student by the Department of Communication and Design Arts based on the basis of talent and proficiency. The Noffsinger Endowed Scholarship Fund is also awarded by the department to a student based on their ability to express Christian faith through art.

“Tori is extremely self motivated and is constantly pushing herself in her designs and overall creativity,” said Jason Higgs, associate professor of visual communication. “She isn’t afraid to experiment or try new things within her art. Tori takes critiques very seriously and never makes the same mistake twice but is also humble enough to admit when she feels a design isn’t working.”

“In my time at AU, I have felt nothing but support from my faculty and staff,” said Storm. “I am blessed to have professors that are so intentional to connect and advocate for me. I feel that my classes have provided me with a wide range of skill practices, as well as real-world experiences that I can connect directly to a future career.”
