Coeur d'Alene Press: NIC METALLICA SCHOLARS PRESENTED WITH $92,600
North Idaho College’s latest round of Metallica Scholars received their tickets to a brighter future when the college awarded them a total of $92,600 in scholarships Wednesday at NIC Parker Technical Education Center.
About 30 students watched a short video message from the band before accepting their scholarships.
“All of us in the band feel fortunate that music has provided us the opportunity to be successful doing something we are passionate about. We want to share our success with others so that they can find a job where they can do the same,” said Lars Ulrich, Metallica’s drummer and co-founder.
