Camille Mapua, a senior at the Wheeler High School Center for Advanced Studies in Science, Mathematics, and Technology, is one of two recipients of a prestigious scholarship from the Georgia Music Educators Association (GEMA).
Mapua is one of just 27 students throughout Georgia to make the All State Chorus for the maximum of six years, qualifying her to apply for the GMEA honor. State choral leaders selected her for one of the scholarships based on her choral performance, a required essay and recommendation from her chorus instructor John Perry.
Perry said, “I am incredibly proud of Camille for this scholarship. She is just an overall fantastic student, completely disciplined and hard working as well as incredibly talented.”
Mapua plans to pursue vocal performance and speech pathology in her post-secondary studies.- Information provided by the Cobb County School District
