The 2003 Jim Ott Memorial Scholarship recipient is Lauren White of the Santa Clara Vanguard Cadets. She was selected by the board of directors of the Sponsors of Musical Enrichment (S.O.M.E.) to receive the $3,000.00 scholarship, based on her academic achievements, her love and passion for music and her desire to give back to the drum & bugle corps activity. Since the Vanguard Cadets did not travel to the DCI Championships, S.O.M.E. President Rick Caccam and SC Vanguard Cadets Director George Brown telephoned her from the DCI Division II/III Championships. She was quite overwhelmed by the news.
