Oakes Scholarship

Oakes Scholarship – BKHS graduate, David Oakes, was diagnosed with cancer in 2007. He has displayed a great love for music his entire life. He played the drums and saxophone, along with other instruments, since the age of eight.  Due to limited resources, David joined the Army after graduating high school and left his music dreams behind.  He felt honored to know that the Oakes Scholarship provided by family and friends will help one graduating senior each year move one step closer to a dream he was never able to fulfill.  The preferred recipient of the Oakes Scholarship should be either planning to major in music or have participated in music during their high school career. To all graduating seniors, remember “somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true” – E.Y. Harburg (1939)
