Alexis and Charles Kehm have established this Scholarship in memory of their youngest son, Chris, who was the light of their lives. He was a Piper, US Marine, sailor, divemaster, member of the SCV, airboater, 3rd year Engineering student and a brother to all who worked with him at Bell South. Chris put a lot of living into his 32 years!
This Piping Scholarship is to the North American Academy of Piping & Drumming at the Valle Crucis Conference Center, Valle Crucis, North Carolina. The Scholarship will cover one week of instruction, room & meals as well as a practice chanter for beginners. This award is for beginners, intermediate or even advanced Pipers as the school offers all levels of instruction. Age is unimportant. Preference will be given to Veterans, descendents or relatives of a veteran and members of Clan MacCallum/Malcolm.
ALL applications will be considered. Transportation costs will be borne by the awardee. We are starting with one week of Scholarship, but hope to expand to many more as contributions come in.
