Jason Paxton Memorial Scholarship Dedication
In honor of Veterans Day, the Northwest Vista College Music Department will present the music of guitarist and composer Jason Paxton, a veteran of the United States Army who served multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. After suffering a traumatic brain injury in combat, Paxton's road to recovery included enrolling as a music student at Northwest Vista College in 2016. He studied guitar and composition, and wrote several compositions during his studies. Following his death in spring 2018, a scholarship in his memory was established to benefit Northwest Vista College music students.

Join us as we present a scholarship dedication to remember Jason Paxton and his guitar compositions, with performances by guitarist Ashley Lucero and pianist Dr. Aaron Prado.
