Theodore “Ted” Lane Jr., a junior music performance major at William Carey University, was awarded the Hub Award Leadership and Service Scholarship during the annual award dinner and program on November 17 at Lake Terrace Convention Center in Hattiesburg.
A native of Lake Providence, Louisiana, Lane has lived in Hattiesburg for 15 years and worked as a music teacher at P.A.C.E. Head Start before enrolling at Carey. He is a member of Carey’s Jazz Ensemble, Guitar Ensemble, the Knights of Jazz and the Jazztet. He is married to Sherry Lane and has five children.
“It’s a great honor to be considered for the scholarship,” said Lane. “It will help not only with school costs but also with marketing myself for future job opportunities.”
The Hub Award Endowment at the Greater PineBelt Community Foundation awards a scholarship each year to a student from Carey and to a student from the University of Southern Mississippi. Jeffrey George was this year’s Southern Miss recipient.
