Special to the Miner

O.W.N., Oracle Women’s Network, is once again sponsoring a Music Scholarship. All schools are invited to participate by having students apply using the Scholarship application and questionnaire.

The group will be accepting applications through the rest of the school year and the first semester of the fall. Lessons will begin in January 2014 and will last one year. The scholarships will be reviewed with an initial call to the parents or guardians and will be then submitted to the O.W.N. Board for review and recipients will be contacted.

Music Lessons have been proven scientifically to produce higher I.Q. scores, better retention, improved reading and math scores, self discipline, improved coordination and Self Confidence. Dyslexia is improved , sometimes dramatically. The list goes on, and since music and art are being removed from so many schools having private lessons are being sought after with increasing frequency.

Any donations toward this scholarship should be taken to Sue and Jerry’s Trading Post in Oracle. All donations no matter how small will be greatly appreciated. Families with used Electric Pianos have donated to the cause. If you have one hiding in your closet please consider donating it.

An electric keyboard, music and lessons will be awarded to the scholarship recipient or recipients for one year.

The Oracle Community Center will be hosting a Spaghetti Dinner to help fund the scholarship. This will be held on May 17 at 6 p.m. Cost will be $12 per meal, $5 under 12. The scholarship recipients from last year will be performing. Please R.S.V.P. to Maggie Riggs, Vice President, at 520-240-1789.

Check with your school office for the scholarship applications. They can also be found at the Oracle Library and the Tri-Community Visitors Center or the Oracle Patio Café located in Oracle. It can also be found on the San Manuel Miner website at this link: http://bit.ly/YD1IcX. If you know a child that can benefit from this scholarship please inform their families or call Elaine Helzer at 896-9132 for more information.
