Frank DeMiero Music Scholarship Recipient


2020 Recipient David Hageage

The Sno-King Community Chorale is pleased to present the 2020-2021 recipient of the Frank DeMiero Music Scholarship.  David Hageage is currently a student at EdCC working toward an AA degree in music theory, and a certificate in music and audio production. He is the treasurer for the Ignite Fellowship Club at EdCC, and is a music tutor in the Trio student support center. Outside of school, he manages the music production for his church, and wears many musical hats at an outdoor music venue in Ballard.

David has an inspiring story of personal triumph and has arrived at a place of giving and compassion that is reminiscent of Frank DeMiero’s devotion to others.  Thirty-one years after leaving high school, he returned to complete his high school requirements for graduation in 2017.  He is on track to finish his program of study at EdCC at the end of this year and hopes to transfer to Evergreen State College. As he said in his essay, “I plan to spend the rest of my life giving back to society.”


2019 Recipient Dain Herndon
