Memorial Scholarship for the Arts
The Roxanna Glass Memorial
Scholarship Fund was established in the fall of 1995 by the friends
and family of Roxanna Glass, valedictorian of the 1987 graduating
class of Lewis County High School and a West Virginia Scholar.
Roxanna graduated in music from Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania,
then pursued her doctorate in music theory from City University of
New York (CUNY). At the time of her death, Roxanna was completing
the last semester of her course work on her doctorate and was
teaching music at Baruch College in NYC. Roxanna was a composer,
winning national honors as a young child and writing many pieces
while in junior high and high school, as well as in college.
This scholarship is designed to
encourage and enable students from Lewis County, WV to pursue higher
education in the fine arts.
