Danny Hall Memorial Scholarship
Congratulations to Katie Lee for being the winner of the Danny Hall Memorial Scholarship. Katie competed for the scholarship on the viola and is a 6th grade homeschool student. In addition to the viola, her musical experiences include piano, ukulele and singing. She is a member of the Huntsville Children’s Chorale and the Decatur Youth Orchestra. Katie is also involved in scouting, is a member of the American Heritage Girls and has taught ukulele as a summer volunteer at the Triana Library.
The Judges for the competition were Kathy Fisher, Microwave Dave Music Education Foundation (MDMEF) board member and scholarship chair, and Dr. Renee Collins, Founding Director of Valley Conservatory. The scholarship was suggested by Microwave Dave Gallaher to honor Danny Hall, esteemed Huntsville musician who passed away last year. The first recipient of the scholarship was Jonah Hall, Danny’s son. The scholarship is sponsored by the MDMEF and consists of one year of lessons at Valley Conservatory, who is a partner in the project.
