The McElroy Orchestral Scholarship
“Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ~Berthold Auerbach
For many of us, music is a vital part of our lives. Music helps us celebrate our victories. Music helps soothe our sadness. And for many of us, music has given us memories and a camaraderie that changed our lives.
in 2015, we lost a member of our Wolf-Tones family: Georgia McElroy (mother to Nancy McWilliams, class of 2015 and a four year member of orchestra and marching band) passed away after a valiant battle against cancer. Georgia was a staunch supporter of her daughter and the music programs at SRVHS, and she often could be seen at concerts, competitions, football games and tours.
In recognition of Georgia’s steadfast commitment to Nancy’s involvement in music, we are establishing “The McElroy Orchestral Scholarship.” Funds collected will be used to award a scholarship to one current senior orchestral student per academic year based on their commitment, enthusiasm and dedication to music.
