The Atlanta Music Project and Allen Edmonds have partnered to offer a scholarship program that reflects the values of both organizations. Both organizations agree that it is important for young musicians to sound their best and look their best for performances. Founded upon this shared belief, the Allen Edmonds Scholarship provides two eligible AMP Academy students with a complimentary pair of performance shoes. The scholarship is open only to teens enrolled in the AMP Academy. Winners were chosen based on the merit of a submitted essay.
This year’s Allen Edmonds Scholarship winners are tenth grade violinist Cierra Butler and ninth grade cellist Danielle Liburd. The scholarship recipients were treated to a red carpet reception on April 11 at the Allen Edmonds store in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta, GA, while they chose their brand new performance shoes.
