Dr. David Yutzey, a retired psychology professor from the University of Connecticut, generously established this fund in 2011 as a tribute to his friend and musical colleague Prof. Robert Lemons. Dr. Yutzey has played tuba in the Community Band led by Bob Lemons for more than three decades. A portion of the fund’s assets will be used each year to provide a scholarship for an academically qualified music major with unmet financial need.
Mary C. Rogers and friends of the Beckert family established this endowed scholarship in honor of the late Hermann Beckert’s retirement from Eastern. Beckert served in various capacities during his many years with the University. The scholarship is awarded to full-time undergraduates with music performance involvement and a solid academic standing.
Paul Kaplitz established this endowed scholarship in 1995 in memory of his wife, Mae. Her lifelong love of music, especially vocal performance, inspired Mr. Kaplitz to create this scholarship. This scholarship is awarded to a music student active in the University’s choral organizations and demonstrating unmet financial need.
