Lisa DeVries, a junior vocal music and pedagogy major from Orange City, Iowa, is the recipient of one of three scholarships from the Fort Dodge Choral Society of Fort Dodge, Iowa. De Vries will be one of two featured scholarship winners in a concert to be held next spring.

The society awards three scholarships per year to vocal music majors after reviewing applications from colleges and universities from across the state of Iowa. Each $500 scholarship is non-renewable, although a student may receive the scholarship for up to two years. To apply for a Fort Dodge Scholarship, a student must send in an application form plus two letters of recommendation and a recording. De Vries is the first Dordt student to receive the award.
