Louise Stephens Scholarship Recipient

Zoe Stiles, William Blount HS

Chris Clift, Choral Director

Throughout high school, I have been heavily involved in music and have put much time,

dedication, and focus towards it. In my freshman and sophomore years, I was one of two

students to make All East Choir; I was the only student at my school to make All State Choir.

I’ve made All East Choir and All State Choir all four years of high school. I was voted Most

Improved Female Singer in my choir sophomore year, and was voted Most Outstanding Female

Singer my junior year. I have been heavily involved in musical theatre as well--my most recent

role was Mary Poppins in Mary Poppins Jr. with Primary Players Children’s Theatre Group. In

my junior year, I received First place in the Broadway Vocal Solo, and Third place in the

Classical Vocal Solo.

I am very passionate about bettering myself and constantly learning about music, so my

plans for the future are to do exactly that. I’m still uncertain on which grade level I want to teach,

but I’m leaning towards high school music education. Thinking long-term, I would love to share

what I have learned on a more personal scale, and perhaps eventually open my own music

studio for private voice lessons. 


Thank you very much for the award of the 2021 ETVA Louise Stephens scholarship! It is such

an honor to receive it.

Congratulations, Zoe! ETVA wishes you the best in your future musical endeavors!
