The Peninsula Music Festival (PMF) selected Spencer Berndt, a recent graduate of Gibraltar High School, as the recipient of their college scholarship. Berndt will attend University of Wisconsin – Stout where he will major in computer science and minor in music.
Each year the PMF awards a $3,000 scholarship to a graduating senior who desires to further his or her education in music. The recipient must be an outstanding music student, who has demonstrated his or her ability as a performer and has shown a sustained interest in music-related activities. The PMF Scholarship is awarded for three years beginning with the sophomore year and continuing through the senior year.
“The committee was so impressed with Berndt’s essay and accomplishments,” said PMF Executive Director Sharon Grutzmacher. “He has worked extremely hard to keep music part of his life and recognizes its importance in his success as he continues his education.” PMF will honor Berndt at the concert on Aug. 9 with his whole family in attendance.
