The arts are essential to providing a well-rounded education, and young people who study the arts consistently demonstrate higher levels of empathy, social tolerance and civic engagement. Low-income students who are highly engaged in the arts are twice as likely to graduate from college as their peers without an arts education. Center Place Arts & Civic Association, located at 619 Vonderburg Dr., Ste. B in Brandon, is seeking sponsors to help cover the cost of tuition throughout the year.
