Berklee Presidential Scholar!!!!!

Max Holm receives the Berklee Presidential Scholarship 2016
This is especially meaningful because you can’t apply for this honor.
Dear Max:
It is my privilege to formally announce your selection as a Presidential Scholar at Berklee College of Music commencing this fall, September 2016.
You have been selected for this honor out of a pool of more than 7,000 applicants to our fall class, involving an extensive international talent search via our World Scholarship Tour.  A final group of twenty candidates were reviewed, resulting in just five U.S. recipients and two international recipients. 
With this honor comes a responsibility and commitment to your development in a challenging artistic environment and a future filled with limitless potential.  The driving force in realizing that potential has been, and will continue to be, you.
Berklee is here to provide you with an educational framework and the tools you will use in your professional career as a performer, composer, educator, producer, engineer, therapist, music business manager…whichever path you choose.  You follow in the footsteps of a long list of distinguished Berklee alumni who seized the opportunity that Berklee provided, and developed successful careers shaped by their experiences here.

Congratulations on this remarkable achievement.  I look forward to seeing you in September.
Sincerely,

Tod Oliviere, AVP
