With much Gratitude, Preucil School of Music announces a private gift from a long-time admirer and friend of the School, Carol A. Bekker, of Iowa City.
Ms. Bekker has donated $40,000 to the School’s Financial Aid Endowment which will now provide assistance to Preucil School families in perpetuity.
The Financial Aid Endowment provides financial assistance for families who have a strong desire to provide their children with a Preucil School education but have financial challenges with tuition costs.
The School is very humbled by the generosity of Ms. Bekker.

How very thoughtful and generous...and a blessing to so many young people who would not otherwise have such a wonderful opportunity.

This is a testament to what the school provides for everyone, whether they have a child in the school or not.
Meet Laurie Wyatt, our new 2-Day Co-teacher. Welcome Laurie!
