Oswego High School senior Emily King, who will graduate in June, has received the Elmer G. Hadlow Memorial Music Scholarship, which is awarded annually to an Oswego High School student who pursues an education and/or career in music.
The annual scholarship was established in 2005, upon the passing of Elmer G. Hadlow, a longtime resident of Oswego, and strong advocate of music in the Oswego community. Hadlow sang for more than 50 years in church choirs, barbershop quartets and choruses throughout Oswego County and Central New York.
The annual scholarship winner receives a check for $500.
Through the years, King has participated in numerous musical activities. She played trumpet in the school bands for nine years, including jazz and marching band for six years, area all state band and orchestra, conference all state, New York State School Music Association, musical pit orchestra for Oswego High School and Fitzhugh Park Elementary, Crane youth music and Syracuse youth orchestra.
King is the daughter of Howard and Sandra of Oswego.
She will attend SUNY Potsdam’s Crane School of Music where she plans to study music business and performance (trumpet).
She hopes to one day have a career in the film, music or artist management industries.
