Knox College is proud to announce that Dave Lee (M.Div. student) has been declared a recipient of the George Black Membership Scholarship for the 2019 year. Dave will be 1 of 7 post-secondary students across Canada, representing a range of Canadian regional and denominational spectrum, to have received this award for the upcoming year.

The George Black Membership Scholarships are awarded annually to Canadian college, university or seminary students showing potential in the field of congregational song. This initiative is named after George Black, who has been described as a consummate teacher who mentored clergy, lay readers and musicians for his entire life.

The current scholarship is free membership in the Hymn Society for the calendar year 2019, thus entitling the student to four issues of the Society journal, The HYMN, and to the monthly email newsletter, The Stanza.

In the last six years, 29 students from nine post-secondary institutions have received this scholarship, thereby learning what the Hymn Society may offer to them as they embark on their careers.

Well done, Dave.
