Eric Bowling, from Columbia, Mo., has been named a Presser Scholar for the 2007-2008 academic year. He will be senior in the fall of 2007, and is majoring in music performance (flute) at Truman State University.

The Presser Scholarship is given to an outstanding music major at the end of his or her junior year. The foundation’s grant of $4,500 was awarded to Bowling at Truman’s Music Awards ceremony this spring. 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.

Bowling is the son of Michael Bowling and Markita Price Bowling of Columbia. He is the grandson of Floyd “Jack” Bowling of Athens, Tenn. He is a graduate of Hickman High School in Columbia.

At Truman he is involved in Wind Symphony, Symphony Orchestra, Flute Quartet and the National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS).
