Meet Our Scholars

Casey Moulton

Casey Moulton

When Casey Moulton graduated in 2013, he became the first in his immediate family to hold a bachelor’s degree.

But the Jenkins Scholar did not stop there. After attending the Southeastern Theatre Conference (SETC), Casey caught the attention of numerous graduate programs and ultimately accepted a full scholarship and an assistantship position at the University of Louisville’s master of fine arts theatre arts program.

“I owe my current position as an MFA acting student to the experience and training I had in FSC’s theatre studies,” says Casey. “Without the scholarship, I would not have been able to afford college and take advantage of all that Florida Southern has to offer. The Jenkins scholarship has been an incredible gift.”
