Harry Hartjes Scholarship

This was established as a memorial to Bandmaster Harry A. Hartjes, Territorial Music Director, who was Promoted to Glory suddenly while traveling to a music camp. Harry possessed a rare combination of experience, joined with common sense, which he used effectively to influence many lives, particularly the young Salvation Army musicians.

In his dual capacity as Bandmaster of the San Francisco Citadel Band and Territorial Music Director, he demonstrated how wonderfully he cared for and related to them. His sudden passing prompted the establishment of the Harry Hartjes Memorial Award that offers the young Salvationists of the Western Territory an opportunity to develop their talents for better service to God through music–making in The Salvation Army.

 

The award provides for:

1. A full scholarship to the Western Music Institute and transportation cost.

Recipients must be between 16 and 25 years of age and have attended W.M.I. for at least two of the previous three years, one of them being the preceding year.
