Honz Awarded Missouri Choral Directors Scholarship
Aug. 3, 2015
Lauren Honz, a senior music education major, has been awarded the Tresa Jo Wilson
Scholarship from the Missouri Choral Directors Association.
"Choral Music Education juniors and seniors from across the state of Missouri apply for the Tresa Jo Wilson Memorial Scholarship each year," said Trent Patterson, director of Webster's Choral Studies and Music Education. “The scholarship is highly competitive, and only one student receives the award each summer. This is the first time that any Webster University students applied."
This scholarship commemorates the legacy of music education left by Tresa Jo Wilson,
a St. Louis-area choral music educator. During her 37 year career, she taught music
students from kindergarten to university level in Indiana and Missouri. Her students
learned a love of music through dedication and expression. This $1,500 scholarship
endeavors to continue her influence on music education by supporting current students
in their junior or senior year who are seeking that career path.
Honz, an accomplished singer, studies voice with Martha J. Hart. She is from Barnhart, Missouri.
