Dan Gorno Memorial Scholarship or the Susan L Galloup Memorial Scholarship

Dan GornoDan was a much-beloved instructor at Earful of Fiddle Music & Dance Camp from 2009-2014. A visual artist, dancer, dance caller, and musician, Dan's warm presence and vivacious personality were integral to the formation of the Earful camp experience. Many campers will remember the welcoming way Dan invited us on to the dance floor where he encouraged, instructed, and facilitated a tremendous sense of community through shared play. He was often the first on the dance floor and the last to leave. Funds raised from Dan's memorial celebration were bestowed upon Earful of Fiddle to provide full tuition as well as room and board to one student every year in his honor. The purpose of the Dan Gorno Memorial Scholarship is to provide funding to enable Michigan residents, giving preference to children and adults from northern Michigan, to enhance their growth and education through attending Earful of Fiddle Music & Dance Camp. It is the intention of Earful of Fiddle Music & Dance Camp to assist those with the greatest financial need and/or the greatest potential for growth. First-time attendees will also be given preference. Awardees will receive a full credit on their tuition as well as room and board but will still need to register.

Susan L. Galloup, along with her husband Bryan, was co-owner of Galloup Guitars in Big Rapids before her death in 2013. Susan loved
her family, her community, and the arts. Her family has chosen to honor her memory by establishing an Earful scholarship in her name.
The Susan L. Galloup Scholarship will be awarded to a minor (under 18) attending Earful, and will also cover room and board for the adult
who accompanies that minor camper.
