The Virginia W. Strait Music Award

Each year, several music awards are given to a junior and/or a seniors at Huntingdon Area High School who are pursuing an education in music. This award was established in 1990 by Jim Shugert, a former music pupil of Mrs. Strait,  and Mrs. Strait's daughter, Joan Applegate. Through their kindness, and the donations of many other admirers, the scholarship fund is possible. By following the link at the bottom of the page, you learn more about Virginia Strait and how her lifelong commitment to music has impacted hundreds of students and the community of Huntingdon.
