June 22, 2011: After much deliberation, the Grey Fox Educational Fund Committee is pleased to announce the 2011 recipients of the Grey Fox–Bill Vernon Memorial Scholarship. They are Molly Adkins and Jonathan Demers.
Molly Adkins (18) is from Salem, OR. A high school senior, she plays guitar and sings with The Bluegrass Regulators, a band that will showcase at IBMA World of Bluegrass in Nashville, TN this fall. She plans to attend Pacific Lutheran University.
Jonathan Demers (24) lives in East Hampton, CT and has been accepted at Berklee College of Music. Jonathan plays mandolin, guitar and acoustic bass with the band, Amy Gallatin and Stillwaters.
Congratulations to this year’s recipients. We would like everyone to know that the reviewing process was especially difficult this year because of the many gifted, talented and motivated candidates.
