John and Marie Swierenga Family
This scholarship is being established to honor the memory of our parents, John R. and Marie A. Swierenga. Mr. and Mrs. Swierenga had six children, all of whom attended Calvin College and were active in various choral and/or instrumental groups. Mr. Swierenga played a brass instrument and all six children played brass instruments in the Calvin College band.
Mr. and Mrs. Swierenga instilled in their children and grandchildren a love for music and the church. They faithfully attended the choir, band and orchestra concerts of their children and grandchildren and nurtured and supported a profound respect for God’s gift of music.
