Congratulations to William Brooks, Junior Vocal Performance major, who has been selected as a Presidential Scholar for the 2017-2018 academic year. As CSUN’s most prestigious scholarship program, the committee was very selective during their decision-making process. Out of 1,550 students who were eligible, Mr. Brooks was one of nine students selected to receive this prestigious honor.
The Presidential Scholarship is one of the three programs under the Northridge Scholarship Program. The award gives undergraduate students the opportunity to work with faculty mentors on significant projects. The scholarship is reserved for Cal State Northridge undergraduate students who have earned at least 60 units with a 3.5 grade point average or transfer students who have earned at least 24 Northridge units by the end of the spring semester.
With help from faculty mentor, Dr. Deanna Murray and mentor, Dr. Anthony Cantrell, Director of Arts Education at the Valley Performing Arts Center (VPAC), Mr. Brooks hopes to provide high quality music lessons for students of local schools around California State University, Northridge by engaging Vocal Performance majors in music education and private voice instruction.
