The Anna Newell Brown Awards for Vocal Excellence were established through the Heritage Fund in 1985 by the now-late Robert N. and Betty Brown to honor Robert’s mother, Anna Newell Brown. She was a distinguished vocalist and contributed greatly to the cultural life of the Bartholomew County community.
The Betty F. Brown Awards for Instrumental Excellence were established by Robert N. Brown in memory of his wife, Betty. She was a well-known and highly respected advocate and patron of the arts, both locally and statewide. Robert was longtime chairman of Home News Enterprises, The Republic’s parent company.
The scholarships aim to encourage formal vocal and music education for Bartholomew County students.
