For Becky Ruthven, a history of connection to Interlochen, along with the power of the arts to unite, inspired her to establish a scholarship for Camp students.
Her connection to Interlochen began through her family. Living near campus, she grew up attending concerts and events. Her mother sang for Interlochen founder Joseph Maddy’s quartet on the radio. And her grandfather, a former University of Michigan president, was instrumental in helping Joe Maddy fund his vision for Camp.
Becky also has seen how Interlochen connects students through the arts. Meet Becky, and a student she helped attend Camp, in this short video.
