Isabel White Memorial Scholarship

Through donations and dues SCCC has established a Isabel White Memorial Scholarship. Isabel had a great love of singing and helping out the community before passing away in 2002. In Isabel’s memory, SCCC will award a scholarship to a student pursuing a career in the field of music (instrumental, vocal, performance, education, production, and theater) in the South Coast area. The scholarship is awarded at one of SCCC’s two spring concerts each year.
