Tom Poshak was Director of Bands for Ladue High School from 1973 until 1985. He subsequently moved to Kirkwood High School and served as Director of Bands and Music Coordinator from 1985 until his retirement in June 2001. In honor of his years as a music educator, former students from Ladue wanted a way of saluting and thanking him for his dedication to music education. Through the creation of an endowment fund, a scholarship of $200.00 has been established to be applied toward summer study at a music camp or seminar of the student’s choice. This scholarship will go to an individual who is a current band student in grade 9, 10, or 11 and is based on merit and need.
