A Hardin-Simmons University vocal performance major has been chosen to receive a prestigious scholarship from the Texas Association of Music Schools.
Rawcilanne Campos, a sophomore from Fort Worth, Texas, has been awarded the Clara Freshour Nelson Scholarship for the 2013 fall semester.
Dr. Robert Tucker, dean of the HSU College of Fine Arts, says the scholarship is very selective and available only to applying sophomore students majoring in music in Texas at qualifying universities.
“We are very proud of Miss Campos for her accomplishments,” says Tucker. “Not only was she selected as a scholarship recipient, she was also selected as one of the three performers for the Texas Association of Music Schools conference that takes place in Austin in January. She will be representing Hardin-Simmons University and the College of Fine Arts at this event.”
Dr. Lynette Chambers, HSU professor of voice says, “Lanne is a delightful, talented, and hardworking student and deserves this award.”
The Clara Freshour Nelson Scholarship Foundation award is administered by the Texas Association of Music Schools for full-time music majors enrolled in a Texas TAMS member institution of higher learning.
As Campos continues to meet all requirements, the scholarship may be renewed each semester until she graduates with a bachelor’s degree.
