THE JAN WILLIAMS MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Jan Williams came to teach at The Music School in the summer of 1978 and her love and influence have never left. For 19 years, her love for teaching music and working with children touched the hearts of all who had the good fortune of knowing her. Jan’s creativity and hard work were inspirational and resulted in many firsts for The Music School. We can thank Jan for the Teddy Bear Concert, Music and Art Around the World, and Music and Art Camp. She taught in almost every curriculum area at the school, but we will remember her most for the Young Musician Violin and Kaleidoscope classes. Writing music, designing and building sets, making costumes, singing, playing the piano—Jan became the spirit of The Music School. Jan lost her battle with cancer on October 22, 1996. We remember her as a wonderful musician with great creativity, who made music an exciting adventure for her students. All proceeds from our Teddy Bear Concert go to a scholarship fund in Jan’s memory.
THE BOBBI RUPP MEMORIAL SENIOR SCHOLARSHIP
Bobbi Rupp volunteered in The Music School office and supported our faculty and students every way she could. Bobbi was proud to be our oldest student for many years. Music was a huge part of Bobbi’s life and she especially loved organ music. Bobbi took organ lessons and practiced here at Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church and sang in the SVPC Chancel Choir. Bobbi passed away peacefully on September 5, 2018, at age 89, surrounded by close friends. The Bobbi Rupp Memorial Senior Scholarship is granted to all students age 65+, no application required.
