Howard J. Slenk Music Scholarship

This scholarship was established to honor Howard Slenk (now emeritus Professor of Music) and the influence he has had on the lives of the donors and many other students, through his leadership of the Capella Choir and Oratorio Society, as well as his excellent classroom teaching.
