Dr. Sally Cherrington-Beggs Memorial Scholarship

Sally Cherrington-Beggs HeadshotThe Newberry College Music Department and the Cherrington-Beggs family established the Dr. Sally Cherrington-Beggs Memorial Scholarship to honor the memory of "Dr. Sally," who lost her three-year battle with a rare sinus-brain cancer in March 2012. In the final 12 years of her life, Dr. Sally served as Chair of the Department of Music and College Organist. Under her leadership the Alumni Music Center was refurbished, the department doubled in size and established itself as one of South Carolina's premiere private college music programs.


Dr. Sally represented the College nationally as a recitalist and workshop clinician at events sponsored by the American Guild of Organists, the Organ Historical Society and the Association of Lutheran Church Musicians and Augsburg-Fortress Press. Her deepest passion, however, was the integration of music into the worship experience of the Church.


The Dr. Sally Cherrington Beggs Memorial Scholarship is intended to honor her memory and to promote the cultivation of promising organists/musicians who are dedicated to using their talents to enrich the worship life of the Church. If you know prospective students who would be suitable candidates for this scholarship, please contact the Department of Music.
