ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP & PREVIOUS RECIPIENTS
Upon Williams death in September, 2015, people who admired his contributions to the community in the arts, music and historical renovation and his giving and teaching nature, created a scholarship in his name; the William Boddy “Passion to Learn” Scholarship. This scholarship is administered by the Salida Council for the Arts with funds raised through individual donations, business sponsorships and through the silent auction at the Boddy Jam. Our annual goal is to raise $5,000 which provides 6 – 10 scholarships for creative instructors in our community each year. These classes are then provided free to our community.
