About our Music Scholarship

Diane Whitt, club member (and popular local teacher) dreamed of a music scholarship for a deserving senior. Diane has faithfully been in charge of the Scholarship since 2008, when the award was only $500. The Fan Club is proud to announce that the Scholarship awards will be renamed to Honor Diane and will be known as THE DIANE WILSON WHITT SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS. Our scholarship is open to all graduating Mississippi high school seniors. Each spring a panel of judges reviews submissions and narrows it down to ten finalists who perform live for our club. A vote is taken and the winner is announced on-stage.  Click to go to the Scholarship Entry Form.
