Young musicians earn scholarships

Lake Carver, 7, a student at Cornatzer Elementary School, is a recipient of The Wayne Henderson Music Scholarship.

She submitted a video and wrote a essay on how she would use the scholarship to continue to learn Appalachia style music.

The scholarships are awarded from proceeds from the annual Wayne Henderson Music Festival, and are open to young people under age 18.

The scholarships can be used for individual lessons, or for attending a traditional musical camp or program.

Carver’s brother, Brant Wimmer, an eighth grader at North Davidson Middle School, also earned a scholarship.
