GREENVILLE, S.C. (September 3, 2019) – The Bob Jones University Division of Music recently awarded 12 music students 2019 Gingery-Mack Music Scholarships which provide merit-based financial aid and study opportunities with master teachers.
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 longtime professors Dr. Gail and Alice Gingery and Warren Mack nurtured 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 Gingery-Mack Music Scholarship Fund was founded to provide gifted young musicians the opportunity to study music at Bob Jones University,” says Dr. Dan Turner, president of the Gingery-Mack Fund. “Our goal is that these exceptional musicians go into their communities and sing and play of the “steadfast love and justice” of the Lord and make music for Him. Through music, they can touch people with the wonder of God’s love.”
The recipients of this year’s scholarships are Wade Morgan of Spartanburg, South Carolina; Anna Haas of Morristown, Tennessee; Emily Pilgrim of Simpsonville, South Carolina; Aaron Frish of Winnsboro, South Carolina; Daniel Elston of Knightdale, North Carolina; Sarah Grace Johnson of Mount Nebo, West Virginia; Emma Madison of West Chester, Pennsylvania; Andrew Barr of Iowa City, Iowa; Heather Spencer of Mountain Home, Arkansas; Bethany Charleston of New Lenox, Illinois; Caleb Wutzke of Montgomery, Alabama; and Matthew Lehman of New Paris, Indiana.
