The Lillian Perkins Morse Scholarship
named in memory of our long-time visionary, mentor, and friend.

2018 scholarships were awarded to Mia Kyler (Riverheads) and Margot Flanders (Wilson Memorial), with each receiving $500 in order to pursue their college careers. These young people have been very involved with Waynesboro Players for several years and both have outstanding theatrical credits from other organizations as well.

Lillian would be very pleased to see the passion and talent that Mia and Margot bring to the Performing Arts.


In March 2002, Waynesboro Players established the Lillian Perkins Morse Scholarship to benefit students who will pursue an interest in the performing arts in higher education. Lillian was a champion of young people and the Players wish to carry on her legacy through this scholarship.

To be considered for this scholarship, candidates should demonstrate:

  • A good academic record
  • A contribution to at least one Waynesboro Players production - onstage, backstage, orchestra, or production team
  • An interest in continuing in the participation of the performing arts or related areas in college or beyond
  • A record of participation in service organizations/activities
