Sven and Mildred Lekberg Music Award 2020
This award is named for Sven and Mildred Lekberg. Dr. Lekberg was chair of the Music Department for 25 years beginning in 1940. Together with his wife Mildred, who taught voice on the Simpson faculty, the couple created the foundation for Simpson’s superior music program. The two juniors who are chosen annually to receive this scholarship award embody the characteristics which the Lekbergs engendered: dedication to their development as musicians and artists, a passion for music, participation in a wide variety of endeavors in the Music Department and positive leadership as a musician and colleague among their peers.
