Bob Mendenhall's dream as Music Director was for every student to have the opportunity to take private music lessons. After his untimely death in 2003, the Mendenhall Scholarship Fund was established to benefit students at WSL who cannot afford the full cost of music lessons. The Fund's primary contributions come through the gift of the annual benefit concert organized by Leah Bartell, Music Director, and music teachers Glenn Dickson, Lynn Nowels, Jane Sheena, and Gabriel Solomon. The first benefit concert was a Memorial Concert in spring of 2003 to honor Bob and his spirit of giving the gift of music.

Bob Mendenhall's legacy has left the school richer in sound and spirit and created the opportunity for all students to explore their talents and creativity in music.
