New World School of the Arts (NWSA) continued its tradition of recognizing the outstanding work of former NWSA students with the coveted Rising Stars Alumni Award, presented each year to one alumnus in each of four disciplines to recognize their contributions to the arts world. This year the awards went to alumni Gaby Diaz (Dance), who appeared on So You Think You Can Dance?, Mauricio Cespedes (Music) of the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, TV and film producer Randall Emmett (Theater), known for movies such as 2 Guns and End of Watch and artist Adler Guerrier (Visual Arts), who has exhibited work at Pérez Art Museum Miami and The Whitney Biennial in New York City. In addition to their awards, each alumnus received a gift crafted by a current NWSA visual arts student.
