)-- Crystal Varelis, graduate of the Barbizon Modeling and Acting Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, received a 3/4 scholarship to study Musical Theatre at Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre, PA – valued at $65,000.
Upon graduating from Barbizon, the 16-year-old Varelis attended the International Model and Talent Convention (IMTA) in Los Angeles where she participated in a full slate of acting and singing competitions. Crystal’s hard work paid off and she surprised even herself by winning several awards.
“We are very excited for Crystal’s achievements,” said Michelle Bradley, Director of the Milwaukee Barbizon School. “She has been an inspiration to all of us and Barbizon is proud to have her as an alumnus.”
While there are numerous scholarships given at the IMTA Convention, this scholarship was the first ever award of its magnitude which was given to Ms. Varelis. For more information, please contact Wendy Cleveland, Barbizon International at 954-345-4140.

Since then, our graduates have been benefiting from the training we provide at our modeling and acting centers across the country and their successes in many walks of life are a remarkable testament to Barbizon’s excellence and commitment.
