Freshman at Ithaca College
"I had the lucky opportunity to be awarded the senior scholarship given by the Encore Music Education Foundation. Currently, I am a freshman at Ithaca College studying music education with a concentration in oboe. Ithaca is one of the top schools for music education, and with this scholarship, I am able to afford going here, and in return, have money to use toward books and supplies for my instruments. I am extremely grateful that I was awarded this scholarship because money, and being able to afford college, is now not a huge worry for me as it could be, thus I can really
focus on, and get the best, out of my education."
