GREENVILLE, S.C. (August 30, 2017) – The Bob Jones University Division of Music recently awarded four music students the 2017 Gingery-Mack Music Scholarship, a scholarship fund that provides financial aid to young Christian musicians at BJU.

“The Gingery-Mack Scholarship Fund allows the music faculty of BJU to reach many more gifted, young, Christian musicians and to equip them to touch hundreds of lives with the power of great music,” says Dr. Dan Turner, president of the Gingery-Mack Music Scholarship Fund and director of instrumental activities at BJU. “We believe this year’s recipients are exceptionally talented young musicians and that their variety of musical abilities will make a great addition to our music department.”

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 Jean-Luc Cataquet of Carolina, Puerto Rico (not pictured); freshman Anna Fraley of Greer, South Carolina; freshman Jennifer Naas of Waynesboro, Georgia; and freshman Nathan Gardner of Greenville.
