About the scholarship...
ACT Through Music began as a passion for preventing an individual from taking their own life and the subsequent pain felt by their friends and family. ACT serves as a memory of Adam Christopher Turell and enforces the importance of awareness through music and community. ACT Through Music Inc. was formed for the charitable purpose of helping to raise awareness and prevent suicide in children ages 12-18 years.
As a certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit, our organization provides online and print materials, distributes “ACT Kits” to local schools, and important information on phone numbers to call/text when in crisis. These unique “ACT Kits” for children ages 12 to 18 include stress balls, journals/pens, and words of encouragement that focus on mental health. In addition to mental health kits, ACT Through Music Inc. established an annual scholarship for high school students.
