    As one of the winners of the very first Sterling Scholar Awards in 1962 (!!), I can remember the anticipation and the surprise of the outcome. The program has changed some and evolved some but is still one of the finest things that happens in Utah. It is a major milestone for a young person and one of the first, in my life, that depended on the judgement of other people about a body of work I had accomplished. For that reason it stays with you for a long time (51 years and counting). My category was Music. I was nominated by my high school principal. I was judged by Maurice Abravanel, Jay Welsh, and Ed Johnston. There is no way to sit in Abravanel Hall, today, and not think about THAT day. Congratulations to all those who participated in this year's competition!
