What an honor to receive the exciting news that a scholarship has been created in my name to assist a deserving child’s study of guitar in Guatemala.
On behalf of my colleagues in Central America I am always happy to work very hard because I know their deep desire to support the arts and education in their countries. This is just another example of how wonderful their hearts are to reach out and share what they have.
I am so proud of all of them! I look forward to meeting the recipient and watching her development with music.
The photo below is from a past Festival, just to help put a face to the story. This boy is NOT The child receiving the scholarship – that news has not yet been released – he is a young man from Guatemala City where the school is.
