The New Day Foundation announced the award of three $1,000.00 Connie Yagelski-Marhanka Music Scholarships to Three LaPorte County Students.

New Day is committed to bring music into the lives of cancer patients as music is an alternative form of therapy. It was Connie’s dream to help inspire young musicians to follow their dreams. This scholarship is given to LaPorte County high school seniors that are pursuing a future in music.

Beginning in 2007 the New Day Foundation offered two $500.00 college scholarships in the field of music. This scholarship is in the memory of Connie Yagelski-Marhanka who fought a courageous battle with cancer.  After the second year with much interest and generous donations, the scholarships were increased to $1000.00. This year with the overwhelming response and the amazing applications, the scholarships were increased to three $1000.00 scholarships.
