Kenneth A. Morrison
Memorial Scholarship

Kenneth A. Morrison passed away suddenly on October 10, 2005. He was a successful consultant in the oil industry and a very active member of the community. Organizations like Quest Theatre, the Ranchmen's Club, the Officers' Mess of Lord Strathcona's Horse, the Bearspaw Golf and Country Club and the Glencoe Club all benefited from Ken's involvement. Ken's passion for music and the arts is memorialized by donations made to the Calgary Youth Orchestra, and the CYO Society Board is pleased to offer this scholarship in his name.

One scholarship of $500 will be awarded in 2006.

Any member of the brass, percussion and woodwind sections of the CYO may apply for the Kenneth A. Morrison Memorial Scholarship.

The awarding of the scholarship will take into consideration some, but not necessarily all, of the following criteria:
• Respect for the conductor and fellow musicians
• Dedication to the Orchestra
• Noticeable improvement in musicianship as an orchestra member
• Family financial need

One letter of application requesting consideration for all scholarships offered by the CYO Society is sufficient. Please write a short explanation detailing how you plan to use the scholarship and include reasons why you think that you qualify for, or are deserving of, the scholarship. If financial need is cited, the committee may ask for supporting documents which will be kept in confidence. All applications will be discussed by a scholarship committee comprised of the President of the Society (Georgia McLaughlin), Scholarship Committeee Chair (Robin Young), Honorary Life Member and Director (John Thompson), Treasurer (Beverley Erickson), Orchestra Manager (Trudy Ross) and the Music Director (Edmond Agopian). The Committee will make its recommendation to the Board of the Society whose decision will be final.

Deadline for submission: Saturday, May 15, 2010


All scholarship winners will be notified at the final rehearsal of the orchestra in June.
