Michelle Brown served as President of Blue Springs City Theatre (BSCT) for eight years. She was a beloved director of multiple youth productions during her tenure. She loved helping people of all ages but especially enjoyed introducing young actors to the magic of the stage, and watching them learn, grow, and evolve. Michelle lost her battle with breast cancer in 2018 and BSCT has established this scholarship to honor her memory and her passion for helping others.
