Betty Balmer Scholarship Fund

During the summer of 2020, OMTA received a generous gift of $5,000 from the estate of Don and Betty Balmer. Betty was a long-time member of OMTA; teaching piano, volunteering great service to the association and offering friendship to her colleagues. This donation has launched a need-based scholarship in Betty’s name, and we are seeking additional financial donations in order to reach the $10,000 amount required to endow this scholarship.
