Fifteen SRU student vocalists competed for the Chad Williamson Memorial Vocal Scholarship at the 27th annual competition Nov. 3 at Swope Music Hall. The scholarship, which provides tuition support to three students, honors the late Chad Williamson. Williamson, a Slippery Rock Area High School graduate, planned to study music at SRU but was killed in a traffic accident prior to his freshman year. Karen Legato, a 1991 SRU communication graduate and former SRU employee, and the late Fred Williamson, started the scholarship in 1992.
