Megan Arns, a junior music and pre-accounting double major from St. Charles, Mo., has been named a Presser Scholar for the 2006-2007 academic year.

The Presser Scholarship is given to an outstanding music major at the end of his or her junior year. The foundation’s grant of $4,000 was awarded to Arns at the spring Fine Arts award ceremony in April.

Theodore Presser is remembered not only as the publisher of “Etude,” the music magazine, and the founder of the great music publishing firm bearing his name, but as a philanthropist who specialized in music education.

Arns is involved in Sigma Alpha Iota, Alpha Kappa Psi, Percussion Ensemble, Drumline, Wind Symphony and the Truman Percussion Society.
