Twelve scholarships awarded to local students

The Laurel Lake Music Society, Inc. has announced the names of the 12 high school students who have been selected for a full scholarship to the Cannon Summer Music Camp at Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C.  The camp will run from June 26 to July 16. The scholarships are made possible by the generous donations of residents of Tryon Estates in Columbus, N.C.

During the past 15 years, 121 scholarships totaling more than $169,000 have been awarded to Landrum High School students, Polk County High School students, and one student at Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy, by the Laurel Lake Music Society.

Attendance at the summer camp will enhance the music skills of these students and increase their understanding of music. This is shared with other students upon their return, thus enhancing the overall school music programs.

Those who earned scholarships for 2016 are, from Landrum High School: Isaiah Adderholdt, Jordan Connelly, Emily Olson, Alex West.

From Polk County High School: Mary-Shannon Eargle, Emily Hogan, Dietrich Jackson, Patrick Stimac, Isaac Smith, Quincy Snyder, and Sarah Woods.
