The Nancy Overcashier Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Nancy Overcashier Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in memory of Nancy Overcashier, who was a hard working and dedicated volunteer for the ORHS Music Program. Her main passion was to help provide funds for all the outstanding music students so that they would be able to participate in Honor programs.  The proceeds of PRISM Concert benefit this fund.
