GREENVILLE, S.C. (September 4, 2018) – The Bob Jones University Division of Music recently awarded eight music students with 2018 Gingery-Mack Music Scholarships, a scholarship fund that provides financial aid to young Christian musicians at BJU.
Founded in 2014 by alumni, friends, and faculty of BJU, the scholarship fund, through competitive auditions and interviews, seeks to identify promising young musical artists and nurture their artistic growth in the same way that professors Gail and Alice Gingery and Warren Mack did for past generations of BJU music students. The recipients cover the entire spectrum of musical arts and come from across the United States to study with the faculty of BJU.
“The music faculty of BJU have touched hundreds of lives with the power of great music and I am thrilled that the Gingery-Mack Fund enables us to impact gifted, young, Christian musicians,” says Dr. Dan Turner, president of the Gingery-Mack Music Scholarship Fund and director of instrumental activities at BJU. “These students are uniquely talented and we trust that they will use this opportunity to perfect their craft for God’s glory.”
The recipients of this year’s scholarships are Andrea Bell of Greenville, S.C.; Lily Fonte of Greer, South Carolina; Haley Kessler of Pelzer, South Carolina; Aleigh Papagno of Belleview, Florida; David Polar of Largo, Florida; Anne Smith of West Columbia, South Carolina; Taylor Worley of Arvada, Colorado and Melody Whitaker of Fairlawn, Virginia.
