GREENVILLE, S.C. (August 31, 2016) – The Bob Jones University Division of Music recently awarded 8 music students the 2016 Gingery-Mack Music Scholarships, a scholarship fund that provides financial aid to young Christian musicians at 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 will allow us to reach many gifted, young, Christian musicians,” says Dr. Dan Turner, president of the Gingery-Mack Music Scholarship Fund and director of instrumental activities at BJU. “This year’s recipients are tremendous and we are excited to have them join us in making music together.”
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 all parts of the United States to study with the faculty of BJU.
The recipients of this year’s scholarships are freshman Evy Beach of Lexington, South Carolina; sophomore Joseph Bowman of Cumming, Georgia; freshman Hannah-Leah Caton of Chester, Pennsylvania; freshman Jane Koelsch of Pfafftown, North Carolina; freshman Jared Lane of Hartsel, Colorado; freshman Katie Taylor of North Augusta, South Carolina; sophomore Emma Whitehouse of Loudon, New Hampshire; and freshman Elizabeth Smith of West Columbia, South Carolina.
