PMF’s New Verheyden Memorial Scholarship

The Peninsula Music Festival (PMF) has received a generous contribution to its Thor Johnson Endowment Trust from the estate of longtime Peninsula Music Festival patron and supporter George Verheyden.

The gift’s mission is to provide sustaining funds for this established educational initiative, which will now be called the George Verheyden Memorial Scholarship. It is given each spring to a graduating senior who resides in Door County, demonstrates great ability as a performer, shows dedication and a sustained interest in music-related activities, and wishes to further her or his musical studies by pursuing an undergraduate major or minor in music.

Verheyden was generous with his family, friends and favorite charities, which included the Moravian Church, Peninsula School of Art, The Clearing, the Moravian Camp Morris and the Peninsula Music Festival.
