Jonathan Lockhart Jr., the 2016 Burt Reynolds Scholarship recipient at the 21st annual Student Showcase of Films, is headed to Florida State University’s College of Motion Picture Arts. Most recently, Jonathan received an associate’s degree from Palm Beach State College (PBSC) along with a certificate in cinematography. The Palm Beach County native feels that the Burt Reynolds Scholarship changed his life and is now committed to proudly representing Palm Beach County as he continues to follow his dreams of becoming a filmmaker. Jonathan, who was a member of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society at PBSC, says he will follow Burt Reynolds’ vision by “keeping filmmaking in Florida.” In addition to pursuing his dreams of higher education and filmmaking, Jonathan is working full-time in the communications department at the Village of Wellington where he helps create and edit PSAs and other video assets.
