University of Nebraska-Lincoln Glenn Korff School of Music’s Cameron Stussie has been named the winner of the Presser Scholarship given by The Presser Foundation.
The most prestigious award given to an undergraduate student in the Glenn Korff School of Music is the Presser Scholarship. Each year, the Presser Foundation makes a grant to Nebraska to be given to an outstanding music major at or after the end of their junior year. This student, selected by a vote of the Glenn Korff School of Music faculty, is to be designated as our “Presser Scholar.” This national honor, which includes a cash award, is intended to recognize outstanding and meritorious achievement in music.
Cameron Stussie is from Lawrence, Kansas, and is a junior music education major with an emphasis in voice. During his time at the Glenn Korff School of Music, he’s been involved as the University of Nebraska-Lincoln C-NAfME president for the past two years, and a member at large for one year. He’s spent two years in University Singers, and one year with the Varsity Men’s Chorus. He’s been honored to spend three years as a member of the Cornhusker Marching Band and the Big Red Express pep band and has enjoyed all of the friendships and connections he has made throughout these ensembles. Stussie has enjoyed his membership in the Phi Delta Theta fraternity and the Omicron Delta Kappa honors society, and every day he’s thankful that he’s a Cornhusker!
The Presser Foundation was established in 1939 under the Deeds of Trust and Will of the late Theodore Presser. It is one of the few private foundations in the United States dedicated solely to music education and music philanthropy. The Presser Foundation supports music performance and education through undergraduate and graduate scholar awards, operating and program support for music organizations, capital grants for music building projects, and assistance to retired music teachers. Much of the grant making focus of the Foundation is on organizations and institutions in the 100-mile radius surrounding Center City Philadelphia. For more information: www.presserfoundation.org
