CSLKN Scholarship Program

Scholarship Winner - Mary Ana Smith

Mary Ana has participated musically in multiple arenas from her local school to county levels and church involvement. While continuing to enjoy music, it was not until a music teacher encouraged Mary Ana to build confidence in her talent that she began to see the power that music has to change lives. From that point, the young teen watched as she saw music changing lives in her community.
Mary Ana saw the connectivity and influence that music can bring to people. Building on this newfound knowledge, she branched into arranging and conducting. Convinced of the power of music to influence, enhance, and change lives, Mary Ana began pursuing the goal of using music therapy to improve lives. She has already been exposed to this work in assisting in self-contained classrooms in high school.
