The first Howard Berkman Scholarship Award has been presented to Brenden Chappell, an aspiring guitarist and vocalist attending Surface Creek Vision School. After carefully looking at recomendation letters from Tony Peters, Brenden’s guitar teacher, and others, the scholarship committee decided to fulfill Brenden’s request for three months of vocal lessons. Brenden (left) received the certificate and check from scholarship member, Mike Gwinn. He hopes to perform a song at the Howard Berkman Celebration Concert to be held in Redstone on July 14. The concert will feature the Northfork Flyers and the Johnny O Band and will include books, memorabilia and other items for sale to benefit the scholarship fund.
