The 2022 Faye & Richard Wood Fiddle Scholarship was awarded to Samuel Richard at the College of Piping year-end recital on June 11 in Summerside.
The scholarship is presented annually to a continuing College of Piping fiddle student and covers the cost of their tuition for weekly lessons for the following year. The award recognizes work ethic and dedication, a positive mindset, and future potential. Richard Wood played many performances at the College of Piping as his career took off, and he and his wife, Faye, wanted to help support the next generation of fiddlers. Rwood.ca
