The Tower Theatre Foundation established the Doug Watson Scholarship for Performing Arts in memory and honor of our longtime friend, member, sponsor, volunteer and board chair.
Doug was a true believer in the performing arts, especially in the power of arts in education. The Tower Foundation is grateful to Doug’s wife Marianne for initiating the funds for this special scholarship.
