Through personal donations and fundraising concerts, the members of the Choir, friends, and supporters fund two scholarships for WLU students: The Keith Knights Memorial Award and the WLU Alumni Choir Scholarship. These awards are distributed each year to deserving music students who show outstanding talent as a performer and make an impact on both their peer group and the broader community.
Keith Knight was a gifted musician who had a resonant bass voice and the ability to play almost any instrument. He encouraged people to come and join the choir; to come and sing and have fun.
