Title: Music Scholarship at Belmont University
Post by: melindasbackups.com on November 02, 2007, 03:39:50 am
At the beginning of September various members suggested that we evaluate the possibility of establishing a scholarship in the name of Melinda at Belmont University.
The idea, of course, is fantastic, but its realization, before everything else, needed to be carefully considered from an administrative point  of view. For this reason, the ILT formed a provisory Explorative Committee to investigate the possible options. 
Contacting Melinda to ask for her approval was also a necessary condition to even start thinking about such a project. Melinda was speechless and amazed that the Backups continue to find ways to surprise her! Of course she approved and agreed to support the project. 
In the meantime, the Explorative Committee has been in contact with Belmont University and we are waiting to receive the guidelines and all necessary information to start an endowment fund. As soon as these details are cleared, we will be able to present the Backups
with a concrete plan for the realization of this project. 
At that point we will create a Scholarship Committee composed of interested members to devise strategies to raise funds and promote the "Melinda Doolittle Scholarship". If you wish to be involved in this Committee, please contact Cristina/Chris-play, Rene, Vicki/Vickster, or Teresa/Shining.
 
Melinda says "Dream Big!" and we certainly never back up ... no pun intended!"  :thumbsup
