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.

Brian Trevisan Maxey Scholarship

Brian Christopher Trevisan Maxey was born June 1, 2003 and died by accidental drowning on April 24, 2020 at the age of 16.  Even as a baby and toddler, he was very outgoing and a friend to all; when he showed up to a park, he would run up to other children, whether he knew them or not, and say “Hello, what are we playing?”  Brian always enjoyed music and found a love for singing in high school when he joined the Baritone Chorus in his junior year.  There he excelled as both a musician and leader and became a section leader for the baritones.  He enjoyed volunteering for different causes, including the El Dorado County Peer Council.  Brian will be remembered as a friend and confidante to many people.  In his short time on earth, he made a deep impression on those around him.  The Oak Ridge Music Boosters, along with Brian’s parents Geoff Maxey and Rosanna Trevisan, are deeply honored to establish this scholarship in Brian’s memory.   This scholarship is offered to students who have been in choir the past two years, including senior year.  A performing arts major is preferred but not required and the applicant have an unweighted GPA of 3.0 or better.
