Miss Thesier Gets Music Scholarship

FULTON — Miss Michele Thesier, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roger Thesier of Fulton, was awarded the Fulton Men’s Chorus Scholarship award during the intermission at the fifth annual spring concert held in the Fulton High School auditorium Tuesday night by the chorus.

Miss Thesier, who plans to study music at the Fredonia State Teachers College is an accomplished pianist. She has accompanied the Fulton High School chorus, participated in many high school music activities and is presently serving as pianist and chapel organist in the First Methodist Church.

Robert Woerpel, president of the men’s chorus, made the presentation.

The award, made annually since 1959, is based on the student’s scholastic standing, citizenship, and participation in music activities, both in school and the community.

Funds for the annual scholarship are obtained from receipts of public appearances and concerts of the chorus, which is a non-profit organization. Eleanor Bok was the first recipient of the award and Maria Kanellis received the award last year.
