Souper Game Party Poster

If there was one thing Karen liked, it was playing games. It didn’t matter whether it was cards, cribbage, or board games, Karen enjoyed spending time with her friends and family. In memory of Karen, we invite you all to come and enjoy an afternoon of soup, games, fun and socializing! This fundraiser will go to support South Coast Community Chorale’s Karen K. Miller Memorial Scholarship.

Karen was a dedicated member of SCCC serving as secretary of the Board of Directors and multiple committees, including the scholarship committee, before unexpectedly passing in May 2016. Because of Karen’s passion for education, SCCC will award a scholarship to a student pursuing a degree at an institution of higher education. SCCC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to spreading the joy of choral music to the greater South Coast community.

When: Sunday, March 4, 2018

Where: VFW Post 8500 – 329 Washington Ave, Somerset, MA

What: Come and enjoy some soup, and bring your favorite board game

The South Coast Community Chorale has announced that Steven M. Miller, Jr. is the winner of the 2017 Karen K. Miller Scholarship. The award was presented to Miller during the SCCC’s Spring concert weekend on Sunday, May 21, 2017 at St. Jude the Apostle Parish in Taunton, Mass.

Miller, who is currently enrolled in the Graduate School of Library and Information Studies at the University of Rhode Island, was awarded a $500 scholarship. He is pictured above with SCCC Music Director Frank Wilhelm, and his grandmother, Jeannette Kenyon.

“I am humbled and privileged to be recognized with this great honor,” said Miller. “Mom firmly believed in the value of a great education, and I will make sure that it is put to good use.”

SCCC’s other scholarship, the Isabel White Scholarship was given to Matthew Dion, who will be attending Oberlin College & Conservatory in Ohio.
