Scholarships Make Great Things Happen For Good People

Erick Martin ’07, an economics and music double major, gave his senior recital this past Sunday. As you can see in the picture, President Pat White and Chris White attended as did Wabash legend Paul Mielke ’42.

Erick is the recipient of the Mary Lou Denney Woodwind Scholarship this year. This scholarship honors Mary Lou Mielke, wife of Prof. Mielke. Mrs. Mielke was not able to be at the recital for health reasons but we’re absolutely sure she’s as proud as can be of Erick! The scholarship is awarded to a music student with preference given to flute, oboe, bassoon, clarinet, or French horn.

Erick has been a very active member of several on-campus musical organizations and also has shared his talents by teaching musicians at Crawfordsville High School. His focus in music has been on composition, and he hopes to become a film composer.

Good luck to Erick and thanks to Paul and Mary Lou Mielke for starting the Scholarship!
