A new Montgomery County Community College scholarship will help students with disabilities who are pursuing a degree in Sound Recording and Music Technology program achieve their dreams.
The Dreher-Coelho Sound Recording and Music Technology Disability Scholarship has been made possible thanks to a $100,000 donation from former U.S. Congressman, Tony Coelho, and Robert Dreher, a strategic business consultant for Bender Consulting Services and recent MCCC graduate.
In addition to the new scholarship, the donation will also help support the college’s Center for Music Technology Excellence Fund, which covers program-related expenses.
“We greatly appreciate this remarkable gift, which will have a powerful impact for students with disabilities,” said Jay Browning, MCCC Vice President for Advancement. “Scholarships provide solutions to life challenges and help to remove obstacles that stand in the way of success.”
With this gift to MCCC, Coelho and Dreher wanted to use their shared passion for music and helping individuals with disabilities to make a difference.
“Montco is a college for students of all abilities, and we thought it was fitting to create this scholarship to help individuals with disabilities succeed in this excellent SRT program,” said Coelho, the author of the transformative Americans with Disabilities Act.
