Bridgewater College recently honored two music majors for their excellence in performing arts: Traci Sink, who won the Huffman Award for Musical Excellence, and Katrina Weirup, who received the Tayman Memorial Music Scholarship.

The Huffman Award honors longtime Bridgewater College professor and music department chair Nelson T. Huffman and is given to seniors who have shown musical and academic excellence. The department’s faculty selected Sink for this award, which includes a cash prize.

Sink, from North Carolina, is the daughter of Jeffrey and Teresa Sink. She is a member of the National Association of Music Education (NAFME) and is a member of Bridgewater’s Chorale, the Concert Choir, the A Cappella Choir, the Symphonic Band, the Jazz Ensemble and the Pep Band, as well a praise and worship band Outspoken.

The Tayman Memorial Music Scholarship provides winners with $1,000 during the academic year for which they win. It is named after a Bridgewater College student Stephen Tayman from the class of 1999 who tragically died at school. Weirup is also a member of NAFME, as well as the Chorale, the Concert Choir, the Oratorio Choir and the Handbell Choir.
