Dr. George Sparks served JMU for 12 years as the first Dean of the College of Visual and Performing Arts, leading the college through a period of unprecedented growth. An enthusiastic advocate of faculty and student scholarship, he established the undergraduate student development awards that support artistic growth every year.

In honor of his memory and to sustain his desire to help students achieve their dreams, CVPA established the George E. Sparks College of Visual and Performing Arts Scholarship Endowment.
