Music Parents’ Society will be offering several scholarships to graduating seniors who have been very active in the school music program throughout their years at Canyon/Creekside and Castro Valley High School. Families must join MPS by Oct. 31 in order for their seniors to be eligible for these scholarships. 

Last year the MPS awarded four scholarships of $300 each to four graduating seniors:
Sam Troxell, Rebecca Marshall, Quill Cromwell, and Calvin Tang
Congratulations to all the recipients!
There were additional funds available for more scholarships if more students had applied.  These certificates and checks are given to the winners at the Senior Awards Assembly in June.
Sample of Award Certificate
In 2016, Board Member Robert Shedd established the Robert L. Shedd Music Major Stipend Award in the amount of $1,000.  Winners of the MPS scholarships are reviewed for intent to major in music in the fall.  Out of those who indicate such an intent. Mr. Shedd selects one student to receive the Music Major Stipend Award.  The certificate and acknowledgement letter is given to that student at the CVHS Senior Awards Assembly in June along with the MPS scholarships.  The recipient of the first award was Sam Troxell.  Congratulations, Sam!
Please note that funds are not issued to the recipient until proof of enrollment as a music major is received in the fall.  Please refer to the acknowledgement and award letter.  
It is imperative that all students read carefully the prerequisites and requirements for these scholarships and awards and make sure they are fulfilled and that they meet all application deadlines.
