MORE ABOUT THE MADELINE BUCKLES PAPE SCHOLARSHIP
Mr. Fred Pape of Edmonton set up an endowment for Taylor students in 2014 in honour of his wife, Madeline Buckles Pape. Part of the proceeds are directed towards students of the Conservatory of Music.
Mrs. Pape attended this institution in 1941-42 before becoming a teacher. She loved music, and Mr. Pape says he hopes the scholarship will encourage deserving students to apply their God-given talents for the glory of God.
