Blake Goehring, a sixth-grader at Elwood Middle School, is among a select group of four student-musicians to receive a Suffolk County Music Educators’ Association full-scholarship to attend the USDAN Summer Camp for the Arts in Huntington.
According to, each summer, more than 1,500 students, ages 4-18, travel to USDAN from neighborhoods throughout the New York metropolitan area. The camp offers more than 40 different classes for students to choose from in eight departments. While some programs require an audition and/or interview, admission into the camp is based on interest.

Goehring was awarded the scholarship after her double bass performance at the Division I SCMEA Concert on March 13.
