Alfred Yesue Memorial Scholarships

Alfred Yesue was a good friend, mentor, and educator. He brought a vast repertoire of tips and tricks for getting the most from our staff and students. Alfred spent many years as the Chief Judge of the association mentoring the judges and helping to craft many improvements to the way we adjudicate our students. The impact that he had on the marching programs of MBDA is immeasurable. Alfred passed unexpectedly in the Summer of 2011 but will be forever considered a part of our association and a dear friend. In his memory, we have established the Alfred Yesure Memorial Scholarship to be given to two students annually at the end of the Maine Band Directors’ Association Marching Band Finals. Please see the link below for application information.
