The group awarded $1,500 to the Performing Arts program at BHS. Lynne Miller from BHS accepted the award, and gave an update on the school’s band, chorus and drama programs.The second award of $2,500 was given to BHS senior Helen Miller. Miller plays the French horn, and is a classic and jazz pianist. She has a 3.95 GPA and plans to attend St. Olaf College next year. The third scholarship recipient was Molly Barnes, a BHS graduate and former scholarship winner. She received $2,500 to continue her music studies at Pacific Lutheran University.
