The Eau Claire Public Schools Foundation is excited to announce a new scholarship available as of March, 2018. The Caravan Scholarship was established by two donors in celebration of the music programs at Memorial High School and throughout the Eau Claire Area School District. They pay tribute to the exceptional experience that their children, and countless others, have had with the music programs in Eau Claire.
The $500 scholarship is available to graduating seniors from Memorial High School, who participated in band all four years of their studies, and who will continue to participate in music during their post-secondary studies. Memorial High School band teacher, Eric Dasher, is grateful for this new opportunity for the students. “I’m very excited that students will be rewarded for continuing playing music in college.” Mr. Dasher shared, “My goal for all my students is to just keep playing after they graduate. This allows them to do just that.”
Eau Claire Public Schools Foundation board chair, Dr. Blenda Yun, appreciates this family’s desire to have a direct impact on our schools. “It is always encouraging to see that our families have benefitted directly from their education in the Eau Claire Area School District,” Dr. Yun expressed, “and giving back is a special way to ensure that these opportunities that your family enjoyed will live on in perpetuity!”
The Caravan Scholarship will award its first recipient in May.
