The Jean and Virginia Coleman Music Scholarships are for Newton High School seniors who are furthering their careers through higher educational pursuits through a college or university. Candidates are those who are involved in school and/or community musical activities and plan to continue to promote the enjoyment of music for self and others through musical activities and/or performance beyond college. The number of students awarded and the dollar amount given is based on money available as well as the talent and work ethic of those applying.
I am very grateful for this scholarship, which is a huge help as I pursue a degree in Music (Piano Performance). Beyond that, this scholarship reminds me of the supportive community from which I come – one that values the arts and giving back to others. I hope to emulate this generosity in my own life, sharing my gifts, time, and money with those around me.
