MacMillan student, 10, gets prestigious scholarship

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - MacMillan International Academy student Matthew Tuck has received a full scholarship to attend the prestigious American Boy Choir School in Princeton, New Jersey.

The 10-year-old will be leaving on September 4 to attend the school, which is regarded as one of the best youth choirs in the country. 

Tuck, a member of MacMillan School Chorus, auditioned for the boys choir in March, and was notified this summer that he was accepted to the program. He is also a member of the Montgomery Youth Chorale and has performed with the Wetumpka Depot.

The mission of The American Boy choir is to sustain and move forward with a distinctively American voice the one-thousand-year-old boy choir school tradition.

The American Boy choir is committed to being the finest choir of its kind in the nation and among the finest in the world. The American Boy choir achieves this each year by recruiting and training talented choristers from across the country.

The mission of The American Boy Choir School is to combine the training program for mastery of choral music with a superior academic program in order to create a profoundly integrative educational experience which emphasizes creativity and such traditional values as self-discipline, self-reliance, hard work, teamwork and dedication to long-term goals.
