Carson Edwards signed a letter of intent to attend Southern Wesleyan University on a music ensemble scholarship.

Edwards is a 2017 graduate of Powdersville High School. Graduating with Honors, he received the Patriot Scholar Award and was a member of the National Honor Society. Edwards also graduated with Honors from the Computer Services Program at the Anderson District Career and Technology Center. While at Powdersville, he participated in the Powdersville State Champion Marching Band as well as the Powdersville Show Chorus. His personal interests include serving in the Rock Springs Baptist Church Orchestra and singing in the Youth Choir. He is most passionate about his leadership role in the Young Men’s Quartet. Known as the Bow Tie Quartet, they travel to churches and venues where they sing four part harmony Quartet songs.

“Through the years, Carson has been blessed to have many positive influences in his life in the area of music including Amy Littleton, piano instructor, and Don Gibson and Steve Allsep, music ministers at Rock Springs Baptist Church,” said Stephanie Edwards, Carson’s mother. “Carson is very excited as he enters the next chapter of his life as he attends Southern Wesleyan University where he will continue studying music as he plans to major in both Music and Computer Information Systems.”

The music scholarship is renewable and open to students who are active in their school’s music programs and Southern Wesleyan students involved in each of the university’s three performing groups.
