Mardi Gras is the theme; Students' education is the focus!
Tallahassee, FL (PRWEB) February 20, 2013
Jim’s Pianos, serving Southern Georgia and the Big Bend Areas of Florida for more than 50 years, will support the Stubbs’ Educational Foundation award for music education at SEF’s Annual Variety Extravaganza Ball., The event which will be held on Saturday, February 23 from 6-10 p.m. at the Tallahassee Antique Car Museum.
Music education enhances a person’s life and work. Therefore, Stubbs’ Educational Foundation is glad to provide scholarships for music, dance and arts lessons, which propel a student into a lifelong learning adventure. After years of receiving these scholarships, applicants are further supported in their education with scholarships available to Tallahassee Community College. The vision of the foundation is to continue expanding these scholarships well beyond North Florida and South Georgia.
Foundation President Martha Stubbs shares the belief that “music instruction is a vital factor in the character development and well-being of all persons of all ages. It is the goal of SEF to make music more accessible in the community by providing music and academic scholarships for students in North Florida and South Georgia. At least 70 percent of the scholarships go to financially need-based recipients and the remaining to merit recipients. Through our community partners – Boys and Girls Clubs of the Big Bend, Boys Town of North Florida, Tallahassee Community College, Lighthouse Children’s Home and Good Samaritan United Methodist Church – we have been able to enhance the lives of many children that may have never had the opportunity to learn music.”
Stubbs’ Educational Foundation awards nearly $50,000 in music and collegiate educational scholarships every year. Jim’s Pianos and owner, Jim Sims, have been faithfully supportive since the inception of the foundation in 1994.
