South Whidbey High School graduate Katyrose Jordan was recently awarded a $7,000 scholarship to help pay for her musical education.

Jordan started learning violin at Island Strings when she was 4 years old. She began playing flute with the Middle School Jazz band, switched to saxophone in 9th grade, and then played with the high school’s award-winning jazz band through her senior year.

She played nine different instruments at her well-attended senior recital at WICA.

The scholarship is awarded in partnership with Billboard Hot 100 and global record-selling group Far East Movement. It is designed to support Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander students pursuing a degree in the musical arts, including, but not limited to, audio engineering, independent artist, instrumental performance and musical performance. Jordan is a double major at the University of Washington in jazz studies (playing tenor sax) and music education. She still plays violin with the UW Symphony.

Her parents are Joan Govedare and Pete Jordan.
