The Joshua Park Scholarship Fund
This scholarship is given in memory of Governor’s School East 1994 Theater alumnus, Joshua Park. Josh embodied the ideal Governor’s School student: he was intelligent and curious, talented and driven, creative and open-minded, and thoughtful and spontaneous.
Following his time at Governor’s School, Josh graduated from the North Carolina School of the Arts, then worked as a director and professional actor on Broadway as Tom Sawyer in the musical The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and in leading roles for national tours of Pippin and Prodigal.
Josh led a life full of creativity and wonderment and inspired audiences wherever he performed. His greatest gift, however, was his zest for the world and those within it. Less than two weeks before his passing, Josh wrote about his Governor’s School friends: “What wonderful misfits we were…and hopefully still are!”
