Frank Bedell Memorial Scholarship Fund
To honor his memory and celebrate his life, the Frank Bedell Memorial Scholarship will be awarded annually to a YACS graduating senior who has demonstrated exceptional talent in their art form and exemplifies Frank’s leadership and kindness. Applicants will answer how they have exemplified these qualities and submit a letter of recommendation to be adjudicated by a review panel. The winning student will receive $1,000 toward their college education.
“As an artist, he was very talented and confident. He was a great songwriter who made his listeners feel connected to his message. I was so impressed by his drive in pursuing a music career at such an early age. But to remember Frank is to remember his dream of creating music full-time past school. He was already a professional musician and was very disciplined in his craft at such a young age. I hope his dream is one as contagious as his smile!”
