Raymond and Ruth Brandon Scholarship was established to honor their
many years of faithful service to the Arkansas School Band and Orchestra
Association and the Arkansas Bandmasters Association.
The ASBOA Executive Advisory Committee
was given the responsibility of administrating the scholarship. Since many
scholarships are available for entering music majors, the committee
decided to offer this scholarship to an individual entering the
instrumental music profession in the state of Arkansas.
This scholarship could help with the
transition time until their first paycheck in September, or it could be
invested in professional materials.
In keeping with the spirit of Ray and Ruths selfless service to others,
we are seeking individuals who have demonstrated high scholastic
achievement, leadership ability, and a desire to help and serve others
the we - us mind-set, not the I - me attitude.
An application for the scholarship is attached.
Please complete and return the
application with all requested materials to the ASBOA office by 3:00 PM on
July 21, 2021.
If you have any questions, please feel
free to contact me at the ASBOA office.
