Ward and Wilson scholarship winners announced

Posted by on Thursday, August 6, 2009 in Articles, Fall 2009.

Wilma Ward provided scholarships for eight students at Blair during her lifetime, and David K. (Pat) Wilson, former chairman and life member of the Vanderbilt University Board of Trust, gave tirelessly to the Blair school, often in memory of his wife, Anne Potter Wilson. These two beloved and generous friends also designated bequests to create scholarships in the collegiate program.

The first Wilma Ward Scholar, Sarah Rhoades, a violin student from Lubbock, Texas, will enter Blair this fall.

This is the second year that the Anne Potter Wilson Scholarships will be awarded. Incoming freshmen receiving this scholarship are: Seth Johnson, voice, Apex, N.C.;  Shelby Flowers, piano, Highlands Ranch, Colo.; Ann Goodrich, alto saxophone, Nashville, Tenn.; Sarah Rhoades, violin, Lubbock, Texas; Rami Grossman, percussion, Marietta, Ga.; Ali Cole, voice, Corona Del Mar, Calif.
