Betty A. (Bange) Kuczynski began studying music as a young girl, learning to play the piano. Her love for the piano and music motivated her study of piano and organ at Hood College, Peabody Conservatory of Music and Chautauqua Institute.
She continued to be involved in music through her adult life by performing publicly and privately, participating as a member of numerous music organizations and supporting the musical arts in Washington County.
The family of Betty A. Kuczynski believes it is only fitting that she be remembered by helping a deserving student further his or her passion for music by offering a $500 post-secondary scholarship for the 2010-11 academic year.
The scholarship will be awarded to a 2010 Washington County public high school graduate who plans to attend and has been admitted to a college.
