The Brinson Williamson Memorial Scholarship was established in 2007 by Mrs. Bobbie Hastings in loving memory of her grandson, Brinson.
Mrs. Hastings wanted to create a scholarship that would benefit a student who shares her grandson’s love of music. Brinson grew up in Rising Sun, Indiana and attended Rising Sun schools. He loved music and played percussion in the Rising Sun Middle School Band, Rising Sun High School Band and Jazz Band. He taught himself how to play the guitar and learned many songs. Brinson loved to get together with his music making friends and hold jam sessions.
