IES is PROUD to announce the first recipient of the Young Musicians & Artists Scholarship
We were notified this week that Damian Garcia has been awarded a scholarship to attend the YMA Summer Music Camp at Willamette University. The award is given to students that represent a combination of maturity, excellent behavior, motivation and work ethic. The scholarship totals $1750 which includes tuition for the 2 week session, on campus housing at Willamette University as well as all meals.
The program has a capacity of 150 students per session and was looking to award a student that plays a brass instrument. Damian has excelled at the trumpet this year and was nominated by his band instructor, Mr. Jeff Searles.
When asked about the opportunity, Damian shared that he is “astonished and can’t believe that as a 6th grader he is so lucky to attend a band camp”.
IES is very proud of Damian and can’t wait to see his success as he continues through school.
