So how does receiving a music scholarship impact a person?
Please read this personal story of a David fan who
knows firsthand what being on the receiving end really means!
My name is Maryanne Munk. When I was 7 years old I began piano and music theory lessons from a professor of music. I worked hard and sacrificed much. My dream was to major in music at a university. I hoped to teach and to bring the joy of music into people’s lives. I wanted others to feel the happiness that music had brought into my life! I became heavily involved with music in the community, church and school. And I loved it!
The summer after my junior year of high school, my father died. It was a shock to say the least and a difficult time for my mother and me. I didn’t know if I would ever have the opportunity to attend a university but I applied anyway and was accepted.
At the end of my senior year, I was awarded a music scholarship through my high school. It was not only an honor to receive this recognition but a blessing to see the doors of opportunity open in my behalf. I attended the university of my choice and majored in music. It has been a joy and blessing in my life! I love teaching and serving in my church and community! It is awesome!
We have the opportunity to not only honor David Archuleta for the joy he has brought into our lives through his music, but we have the opportunity to open the doors of opportunity in some young musician’s life. May we all pull together to make a difference, for out of small things can big things be brought to pass!
YOU can be a part of impacting a life too!!
Our campaign ends April 9th.
