Kristin Smith Percussion Scholarship
Kristin Smith was a vibrant young lady and talented musician who attended Orange Grove Middle School. I was lucky enough to be able to work with her nearly every week for three years before her tragic death in December of 2000. Kristin was always a joy to have in the studio. She worked hard and made incredible progress in those three years.
To help preserve Kristinís memory and to promote hard work and dedication in the Orange Grove percussion section, I have established a scholarship in Kristinís memory. For as long as I continue to teach private lessons in the Tucson area, one Orange Grove percussion student per semester will receive a block of ten weekly lessons.
At the end of each semester, after considering the efforts and progress of percussionists at the school, the Orange Grove band director will select the winning student. The lessons are given during the spring or summer following each semester. A student can receive the scholarship only once. If there is no clear winner of the scholarship in a given semester, the band director will attempt to select a winner at the end of the following semester.
