Bill and Sharon Brewer endowment now in place

In memory of Bill Brewer and in honor of his wife, Sharon, the Pellissippi State Foundation has made available the Bill and Sharon Brewer Music Scholarship.

The fund is set up for online giving at or by bringing a check to Pellissippi State Foundation offices.

The endowed scholarship will be awarded each year to a Music major with a GPA of 2.75 or higher. The funds disbursed to the student will vary depending on the amount of scholarship money available.

Bill Brewer, the program coordinator of Music at Pellissippi State, passed away in late March after a battle with cancer.

“This scholarship honors Bill’s legacy as an enthusiastic teacher and a talented musical voice,” said Peggy Wilson, executive director of the Foundation and vice president of College Advancement. “Bill was dedicated to his students, and we hope this scholarship helps carry on his incredible gift of encouragement and his commitment to excellence.”
