John Antosh Earns Presidential Scholarship
Immaculata University is pleased to announce that incoming freshman John Antosh has been selected for the Presidential Scholarship. Antosh resides in Graterford, PA, and graduated from Perkiomen Valley High School. He plans to major in Music Therapy.
The Presidential Scholarship is awarded to a select number of students with a record of academic excellence. Students are evaluated on the bases of GPA (students must maintain a 3.25 GPA), class rigor, standardized test scores, class rank, and recommendations.
With a passion for music, Antosh was heavily involved in his high school’s music department offerings including concert band, wind ensemble, symphony, jazz band, marching band, pit orchestra, choir, men’s choir, and district band. He was also a member of the National Honor Society and the school’s environmental advocacy group. Outside of academics, Antosh joined the Boy Scouts and achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. For five seasons, he served at Ockanickon Scout Reservation as a counselor in the performing arts and as an archery range master; he will resume this position for the 2018 camp season. He is a parishioner of St. Mary Roman Catholic Church in Schwenksville, PA, where he was an altar server and a Lector.
Once Antosh completes his undergraduate degree in Music Therapy, he plans to work as a music therapist while working on his graduate and doctorate degrees so that he may conduct research on the application and effects of music therapy to enhance and promote the field.
“It is truly a blessing to have been selected as a Presidential Scholar at Immaculata University. I look forward to studying Music Therapy so that I may combine my passion of music with my eagerness and desire to help and serve others. I am honored to be a member of the Immaculata community and I look forward to the years to come,” states Antosh.
Immaculata University is a comprehensive, Catholic, coeducational institution of higher education, located on the Main Line between Malvern and Exton, 20 miles west of Philadelphia.
