Mr. Spicer,


I am pleased to report the recipients of the 2013-2014 Cale Howard Music Scholarship and Vandegrift High School Band Booster Scholarships.

We received many applications.  Thank you to everyone who committed the time and energy to completing an application.  It is a true personal privilege to review the details and especially to read the narratives.  Each application received was superlative and reflects the high quality of the VHS Band program on a whole.  Please give special thanks to Mrs. Kimberly Ohlson and Mr. Lonnie Fink for their participation on the selection committee and their continued leadership.

Based on our review, the following VHS graduate will receive the Cale Howard Music Scholarship 

Mr. Kyle Richardson     University of Colorado at Boulder      Music

The following VHS graduates will each receive a VHS Band Booster Scholarship –

Mr. Calvin Geng    University of Texas at Dallas    PACT BS/MD Program

Mr. Zachary Chipman    University of Michigan – Ann Arbor    Astronomy / Astrophysics


Scholarship awards are $500.00 US dollars and will be sent directly to the University listed above for the benefit of the student’s account once registration/attendance is confirmed with the registrar in September.


I would like to personally congratulate these winners and wish all applicants and recent VHS Band graduates the best of luck.  It has been a pleasure to have a “sideline seat” for this glorious season.  You ARE “Second to None” – you’ve proved it.   Never let anyone in your present or future try to convince you otherwise.

“Live long and prosper.”


With great respect,


David W. Hill
