Music Student Wins Bursary

Dawson Abdurahman

Dawson Abdurahman is planning to go to college in Boston in the fall and NCS is helping him towards his goal with a $1,000 bursary.

Not only is he a dedicated musician, practicing four hours a day and active in concert and jazz bands in Ballenas High School, he has also proved himself an avid sportsman.  Rugby, soccer, basketball and volleyball have been his activities in high school and he has participated in minor hockey for the past twelve years (recently as Team Captain).

Dawson has proven how important his community is to him by volunteering for the Nanoose Community Cupboard (forerunner of NCS), Feat for Food, and Art in the Garden.

Congratulations, Dawson – we look forward to hearing how you enjoy your time at Berklee College of Music.
