In honor of friend and faculty member Peter Jacobi, we have established a scholarship in his name that provides full tuition to attend our Crafting Successful Author and Illustrator Visits workshop.
Peter Jacobi taught at the Highlights Foundation Writer’s Workshop at Chautauqua for each of its 28 years, including delivering a moving keynote speech each year. Peter’s signature workshop at the Highlights Foundation was initially called: “Life in the Spotlight: Crafting Successful Public Speaking Engagements.” Peter’s workshop continues today as Crafting Successful Author and Illustrator Visits where students prepare a presentation, go into the schools to give their presentation, then receive feedback on that session. In addition, Peter taught a number of courses in nonfiction, as well as participating on the faculty of our Summer Camp Workshops in fiction and nonfiction for many years. We had a wonderful birthday celebration for Peter at the Highlights Foundation in July 2018.
