Dick Kegerreis (1928-2002) contributed enormously to ACDA through his service as editor of the Eastern Region's Troubadour, as national coordinator of newsletter editors, and as editor of New York's state newsletter Choral Cues. To honor these contributions, as well as his life as a dedicated choral conductor and mentor, the Board of the Eastern Division in 2002 established the Richard I. Kegerreis ACDA Eastern Region Conference Scholarships. Scholarships are available to students studying choral music at the collegiate level to attend ACDA East Region conferences. Scholarship details (deadlines, application process, and award amounts) are published in connection with the East Region’s biennial conferences.
Funding for the Richard Kegerreis Scholarships comes from ACDA Eastern Region funds, supplemented by donations by any persons wishing to honor Richard Kegerreis. Donations are tax-deductible, and Mrs. Kegerreis will be informed of those donating to this fund as a memorial to her husband.
Donations may be made by checks payable to: ACDA Eastern Region
