Fife and Drum Scholarships

Fife and Drum Scholarships

Local high school seniors and members of the Colonial Williamsburg Fifes and drums, Alan Burkett, Anthony Pinto, Michael Fochtman, and Henry Gaston have been chosen to receive college scholarships of $1,000.00 each from the Tricorn Foundation. All four intend to enter college in the fall of 2017.

Gaston and Pinto are fifers, Burkett is a snare drummer, and Fochtman is a bass drummer. The scholarships recognize the achievements of the graduating seniors in academics, in the community and in the Corps. While in the Senior Corps these individuals performed hundreds of time a year both in and outside of Williamsburg, including trips to New England fife and drum events.
