Campus Club sends student to prestigious summer music program



Since the scholarship covers the tuition fee, Stewart is currently raising funds to help cover the cost of travel and lodging. 

“This program is worth $12,000. Tuition is paid for but [Stewart] has to pay for room and board, which is about $3,500. We’re asking for support through donations so he has no cares while he’s there,” CCM Executive Director Gregory Barnes said. “This opportunity for [Stewart] is extraordinary for his college resume and to be able to audition and compete against young people across the nation for the scholarship is amazing. [Stewart] deserves this; he’s a hard-working young man with great talent and has great family support. He has all of the intangibles needed to be successful in any profession he chooses.”

Though a total of five CCM students have been accepted into the Berklee summer program, Stewart will be the third CCM student to represent Milledgeville-Baldwin County and experience the program first-hand.

“This opportunity is exactly what we’ve been saying for years about this area. We have very talented young people who just need a chance. Campus Club Milledgeville is able to hone their skills and take them places to express their skills,” Barnes said. “Berklee has seen that Campus Club Milledgeville helps bring talented youth to their program and in turn they help us prepare talented youth for their program. We’re very appreciative of the Berklee College of Music for having this type of confidence in Campus Club Milledgeville in bringing forth talented youth.”
