With the permission of the Rosander family, Vanguard has established an on-going Myron Rosander Memorial Scholarship for three current members of SCV or SCVC. Members with a minimum of one-year experience in either corps are eligible to apply each year. Based upon funding, three scholarships will be awarded annually, one for brass, one for percussion and one for color guard in either corps. While the criteria for the scholarship is focused on need, character references, grades and service, we will also acknowledge dedication and passion for SCV, similar to what Myron demonstrated throughout his many years of teaching.
From an Inner City LA neighborhood, Art struggled to pay his tour fees, but was everything that exemplified an outstanding member of the Santa Clara Vanguard. On May 26, 1999, a tragedy took Art from this life, his friends and the corps. The Art Velarde ‘Jonz’ Memorial Scholarship has been created by Art’s friends, to assist a financially struggling member of the Vanguard percussion section, who exemplifies the spirit of whom Art was to us all. This scholarship is awarded to a veteran member of the SCV Percussion section who demonstrates the passion, positive attitude, loyalty, belief, humor and fearlessness which made Art Velarde unique, loved, and admired as a forever friend.
As an alumni of SCV, Gary went on to teach SCV Marching, and touched the lives of so many. His low-key gracious attitude, was one of a kind.

The funds donated to this scholarship will be awarded to a current marching member for their superb marching ability, their gracious personality, as well as their need for support. The funds will be applied to their past, current or future tuition. If a balance in the scholarship remains, it can be used to fund a second individual or added to the following marching years recipient(s). This award will be decided upon, by the current SCV “A” marching staff, and will be awarded at the end of season banquet.
