|about the sam baird scholarship|
First announced in 2016, the Sam Baird Scholarship has been established by us to help local students pursue their musical aspirations. This scholarship is continually funded by our members, business partners, and private citizens. The award winners exhibit both scholastic and musical excellence.
This scholarship continues the legacy of noted musician and S.A.B.S. member Sam Baird, who supported and nurtured the growth of the area music community for many years. Announced in 2006, this local scholarship is awarded to students displaying academic strength and musical ambition. This award is presented at the Fiesta Blues Heritage Series. S.A.B.S. works in conjunction with Art and Music Directors to announce and promote this opportunity to eligible local students. The award winners are announced at our various events, such as Fiesta Blues Heritage Series and the Robert Johnson SA Sessions Festival. It is a special event involving family, friends, and an appreciative audience. This is an ongoing endeavor that we put our full effort into - working with schools, parents, sponsors, corporate members, and community leaders to get as many students involved as possible.
