Scholarship for future musicians

Palmer Family Music Education Scholarship applications are available for DeKalb County students graduating high school and going on to study for a career in music. Interested students can access the guidelines and application at www.dekalbccf.org. Completed applications will be accepted until 5 p.m. April 1.

Dee Palmer, director of the DeKalb Municipal Band since 1948, passed away in November 2011. Palmer and his family contributed to the musical pleasure of thousands of people in DeKalb County for more than 160 years. The scholarship fund was established in their honor.

The scholarship will be awarded by a committee composed of individuals from various musical backgrounds and representing communities throughout DeKalb County. Last year’s recipient was Katie Beckman, a graduate of Genoa-Kingston High School attending The University of Kentucky-Lexington.

Donations are encouraged to grow the scholarship fund. For more information about applications or donations, contact Becky Zantout at 815-748-5383 or becky@dekalbccf.org.
