Mid-America Music Association Scholarship awarded
A new music scholarship was recently established by the Mid-America Music Association (MAMA) to honor students enrolled in the music program at Iowa Lakes Community College. A fundraising dance was held last fall with scholarship money raised, making this an annual event. Carolyn and John Walz, MAMA board members, award the first Iowa Lakes recipient, Martin Eckard, with the newly established Mid-America Music Association Scholarship. An Arts and Science major, Eckard plays trombone in the Iowa Lakes jazz band and is also the pitcher for the Iowa Lakes baseball team.
Other members of the Northwest Iowa MAMA board include: Ron Lefever, Tom Golden, Connie Sievenbruner and Jackie Hein. The second annual MAMA scholarship fundraising dance will be held Saturday, Oct. 21 at the Expo Center in Spirit Lake, from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. with the band The Expressions.
