The Sea Belles, a 55-member women’s barbershop chorus based in Saint John, NB, is the winner of this year’s $1,000 Karen Gordon Scholarship, administered by the ScotianAires.

The scholarship was created in memory of Karen Ruby Gordon, a member of the ScotianAires who was killed by a drunk driver on the way to chorus practice in May, 1992.

Any Harmony Inc. chapter in Atlantic Canada (except the ScotianAires and the previous year's winner) can apply for the scholarship, which provides financial assistance for chorus education.

The scholarship winner was announced at the 2016 Area 1 AC&C in Sackville, NB.
