Avril Frick, a music major from Oakville, Mo., has been named a Presser Scholar for the 2005-2006 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 Frick 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.

Frick is involved in Campus Crusade for Christ, in addition to a number of music department organizations and activities at Truman.
