Gage was selected to re- ceive this award, based on her involvement in the per- forming arts while attending Quincy High School. She has played violin with the Reno Philharmonic Or- chestra and the Quincy High School Youth Orchestra. She participated in the Brigham Young University Summer- fest. She has also performed in the Northern California Honor Choir. In addition, she has partici- pated in community and high school music festivals and recitals. Her talent ranges from playing handbells, which she played at the annu- al Methodist Church Spring Tea, to playing the trumpet at the Reno Jazz Festival when she was a senior in the Quin- cy High School Jazz Band. Gage feels that her greatest achievement was being ac- cepted to the Interlochen Center for Arts in Michigan during the summers of 2000 and 2001. She was In'st violin- ist in the World Youth Sym- phony Orchestra. The center encourages students to learn other instruments. This year, Heather chose the tuba. Last year, she learned to play the trumpet. Gage discovered early in life that she had a passion for music. She started playing vi- olin in a program sponsored by the Plumas Unified School District and Plumas Recre- ation Department. The class- es were held at Pioneer Ele- mentary School and taught by Johnene McDonald. She continued to take private lessons from Johnene. She has performed violin, trum- pet, bass, fiddle, and voice be- cause it brought joy to herself and others. Gage also took lessons from Janet Shape in Reno for sev- eral years and, upon Janet's encouragement, entered the Nevada State Music Teachers Competition and won first place in 1999 for violin in the high school division. Currently, Gage is attend- ing school in England for one Heather Gage is all miles after receiving a performing arts scholarship from the Ladies of Twain. year, studying music, drama, chemistry, physics and phi- losophy. She continues to play the violin and trumpet in the school and county or- chestras and jazz bands. Gage plans to use the schol- arship to continue her educa- tion and participation in the peyforming arts field. She plans to combine music per- formance and education as a career. She would like to teach music, as well as partic- ipate in a local orchestra. It was with great pleasure that the Ladies of Twain se- lected this very exceptional young lady as its 2001 schol- arship recipient. Joyce Drey- er made the presentation to Gage at the Senior Awards Program. The Ladies of Twain meet periodically during the year. Their objective is to support the community, as well as to develop a scholarship fund for the performing arts at Quincy High School. Some of their activities in- clude creating seasonal holi- days for the residents of the convalescent homes in Quin- cy, and maintaining a garden display entry at the Plumas-Sierra County Fair. They also donate gingerbread houses to the service club at Quincy High School.
