New Hartford teen awarded music grant

NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. (WKTV) - A local high school student received a big honor Monday night.

New Hartford senior Samantha Hollister was awarded a grant from the Oneida County Music Educators Association.

The grant is open to seniors with plans to attend college with a music major. Hollister says she looks forward to using music to help others.

"Next year, I'm going to be going into music education and hopefully minoring in psychology," she said. "Because, I eventually want to work with people. Help rehabilitate people with disabilities and use music to do that."
