GREAT NEWS FOR OUTREACH! The family of Charles E. Stuart Sr., in order to honor his lifelong musical legacy, has created a scholarship fund at the Fiddle & Pick Musical Heritage Center in Pegram, Tennessee. The scholarship will provide the opportunity for children young and young adults to take music lessons, who otherwise would not be able to do so. Donations may be made at any branch of Community Bank & Trust in Pegram.
A donation to The Charles E Stuart Memorial Fund is tax deductible, and will not only give a child music lessons, but will also help our teachers and the Center with their mission and commitment to music education, history, and preserving traditional music. The Musical Heritage Center sincerely thanks the family of Charles E. Stuart and the Pegram Community Center (whom Charles was a founding member) for making this possible.
