Alumni Band awards scholarship

The Alumni Band announced that Jeanna Beaudoin, a senior at Sanford High School, is this year’s recipient of the Marcel ‘Mike’ Drapeau Alumni Band Scholarship, an award of $1,000. It was announced at the recent Alumni Band Scholarship Concert held at Old Orchard Beach’s Loranger Memorial Middle School.

Beaudoin won chairs at the District 1 and All State Musical Festival levels and a seat at the National Association for Music Education All-National Honors Festival. This is the first time a scholarship recipient has reached this level of achievement. In line with the scholarship’s mission, Beaudoin is a leader among her peers in helping younger members improve their skills and setting an example of musicianship. She has been a regular member of the Portland Youth Wind Ensemble and most recently as a member of the Portland Youth Symphony Orchestra.

Beaudoin will pursue undergraduate studies in clarinet performance at Ithaca College in New York.
