“Did you know that our students win numerous awards each year?” Department Chair Mike Dugan states. “UW-W Music students have won more prestigious Gaarder Awards than any other school, an award that is given out annually to one music student in the state of Wisconsin. This last year, one of our students was the recipient of the ASTA Student Exemplary Service Award, a nationally prestigious award that goes out to one student per year. Each year, this holiday tradition helps the department raise funds that go directly to our students through scholarships. What better holiday gift to give than the gift of education?”
