On February 10, 2014 Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur addressed the Ohio House of Representatives stating “ I rise to pay tribute to the life of a great American, Patricia McNamara Beazley, a magnificent woman and citizen…Pat Beazley was an extraordinary human being. The minute you met her you felt like a member of her family. She was an artist of family, a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and an artist in her own right. Her paintings abound not just in her home, but throughout our country and, certainly, in her home community…”. In addition to being an IB Visual Arts student, the ideal applicant should be on track or ahead on volunteer service hours since service was a significant part of Mrs. Beazley’s life.
