When Coach Karen Graves was hired by Marygrove to head up the Women’s Volleyball Program, in addition to creating an exceptional team of young volleyball players, she wanted to help the young women on her team understand what it means to contribute to the community in which they would most likely spend the next 3 to 4 years living.

To qualify for the Presidential Scholarship, candidates need a minimum 3.70 grade point average, along with three letters of recommendation, and an essay that answers the question, “How does your leadership experience align with the three Cs of Marygrove College: competence, commitment, and compassion?”

To hear Jessica Knott and Darrius Washington sing is to hear the voices of angels. And fortunately, these angelic sounds will carry themselves all the way to Italy this summer, thanks to an opportunity for Knott and Washington to perform in the 2010 Vocal Program at the Amalfi Coast Music & Arts Festival in Amalfi, Italy, July 14 – 26, which was funded, in part, by a generous donation from an anonymous Marygrove alumni donor.

They were selected to perform in a summer opera production of Mozart's “The Magic Flute” as well as additional solo performances in select opera scenes—an incredible honor, as there were an unexpectedly high number of applicants this year, making the normally complex audition review process even more selective than usual. Washington will perform the roles of Armored Man/Priest and Knott will perform the role of 2nd Spirit.
