Bob Hollowell Memorial Scholarship

This memorial scholarship is named for Bob Hollowell, former Executive Director of KMEA, for his service to the organization and to the kids and teachers that he served so well during his long tenure with KMEA.

Bob served KMEA as Executive Director for 30 years. He worked tirelessly and with little or no salary to make sure that KMEA helped music education teachers in Kansas. KMEA went through some very difficult financial times during the early days of his tenure, and it was largely through his efforts that the organization survived. He saw to it that KMEA not only survived financially, but grew in membership and programs to benefit teachers.

Those who knew him and worked with him in KMEA know of the great love he had for the profession and for his colleagues. He is remembered for his outgoing personality and for his wonderful sense of humor. If you were a friend of Bob's, you were most fortunate. His many friends were the joy of his life. His booming voice and his laughter were always a highlight of any KMEA activity. He was a most special person and a major factor in the development of KMEA.

In his honor, KMEA will present a $500 scholarship to a deserving college junior each year at the In-Service Workshop. The Board asks that his many friends remember him by contributing to the annual scholarship fund. Each contributor will receive a receipt that will verify the gift for tax purposes.
