On September 20th, 2021, the world lost a great woman, my mom Caroline. She was a wonderful person and supported everything her children showed an interest in, even if it meant early mornings, late evenings or crazy travel schedules. It is because of her that I am here teaching your students today. In her memory, we have established a choir scholarship for graduating NFHS Seniors planning to pursue a degree in music. Last year we supplied two $750 scholarships to Evan Skrip and Emma Turner, both of whom are attending college pursuing Music Education degrees. We are raising funds to provide two more scholarships this year.
Since announcing the creation of the Caroline Seese Memorial Scholarship, your outpouring of support, messages and emails of "how can I help" have been overwhelming with the generosity you have shown. It is such a blessing to be part of an amazing choir family! Many of you asked about donating digitally. I have created a Venmo account for just that. Please indicate that it is for a scholarship donation. The QR link is attached below. You can also send a check (made out to NFHS) to: 3635 Coal Mountain Dr (attn. Gene Seese), Cumming, GA, 30028. All donations are tax deductible, please contact me if you need a donation letter. The application process for the scholarship will begin in January.
Thank you in advance for your generosity as we honor my mother’s memory and support the next generation of musicians! Please reach out to me if you have any questions.
