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.

The judges have come to a decision and wish to announce the 2021 Scholarship winners.

1st Place: JaMya Bell – $5000.00

2nd Place: Lucas McKeown – $3000.00

3rd Place: Elizabeth Bouchillion – $2000.00

Congratulations to our 2021 Winners. We want to thank all our graduating Seniors for their participation in our scholarship program. The contestants were all great and the judges worked hard to come to this decision. We hope everyone enjoyed the videos that the contestants supplied and look forward to next year's competition. Everyone that has a Senior graduating in 2022 please let them know about the Scholarship Program. See you next year!
