A heartwarming moment in the music department: Bellam Scholar meets donor

Mariel Bailey ‘72 visited campus last month to meet the first recipient of the scholarship she and her husband endowed to honor her former professor, Dr. Paul Bellam. 

The Bellam Memorial Scholarship rewards the concertmaster or mistress in the Lewis & Clark orchestra and Julie Yeckes ‘13, first violin, held that position in the fall of 2012.
