At the Wando High School Chorus Awards Ceremony on May 30, Michelle Sullivan received the Marilyn J. Austin Scholarship Award. The Marilyn J. Austin Scholarship was established in 2006 by the Wando High School Chorus Music Boosters to honor Mrs. Austin for her many years of service to Wando High School as chorus director (1991-2006).
Mrs. Austin believed that instilling a love of music in her students was the most important job of any music teacher. She also wished for her students to carry that love of music with him or her to college and beyond. The Austin Scholarship recognizes the musical accomplishments of a senior member of the Wando Chorus program. After graduation, Sullivan plans to attend Converse College and double major in Music Therapy and Music Theatre.
