Baldwin senior earns scholarship
Stephanie Jarvis, Baldwin High School senior, received the 2001 Lawrence Civic Choir scholarship award during the BHS awards assembly on May 18. This award is given each year to a student who shows outstanding talent and participation in vocal music during high school and who plans to continue their music education at college.
The Civic Choir scholarship encourages youth from Douglas County high schools to continue their musical education. In the past, the award has always gone to a student in the Lawrence schools. This is the first year that BHS has offered an applicant for the scholarship. It is also the first year that the LCC board has been unanimous in their choice of their award winner.
The Lawrence Civic Choir has provided amateur vocalists in Douglas County the opportunity to sing quality music under professional direction for 26 years, usually numbering 100 voices.
Jarvis has performed in school productions as well as community theater groups and has taken honors in many vocal competitions. She has been active in dance, forensics and debate.
She plans to continue her education at Wichita State University, majoring in Opera Theater and Musical Theater, with the goal of a professional music career.
