Fund Honors Industry Talent and Mentor

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA, October 7, 2009 — The NSCA Education Foundation has partnered with Bosch’s Communications Systems Division to establish the Monte Wise Scholarship, an ongoing scholarship named in fond remembrance of Monte Wise — “one of the pro audio industry’s great personalities and mentors? — who passed away on September 30, 2009. Monte was systems applications specialist, Pro Sound, for Bosch’s Communications Systems Division.

“Monte touched many lives over the course of an exceptional career,? said Daniel Nix, VP of Sales, Americas, for Bosch’s Communications Systems Division. “He was a mentor to many, and helped take hundreds of individuals and companies to the next level with education and technology. We were humbled by the amount of inquiries we received, in the wake of his passing, from friends and colleagues asking ‘Is there anything we can do?’

“The creation of the Monte Wise Scholarship, in partnership with our friends at the NSCA Education Foundation, with whom I am proud to serve as a board member this year, answers that question: Yes! Please help extend Monte’s legacy as a great teacher in the art of sound reinforcement by making a contribution to this scholarship. Monte was a talented musician, a true gentleman and a dedicated scholar – this will be a fitting tribute to his passionate work in the pro audio industry.?

“Monte’s excitement for his job was contagious,” said Chuck Wilson, NSCA executive director. “This industry is going to miss one of our great personalities and mentors.”

Applicants will be chosen based on their goals and achievements in music, arts and sound reinforcement – Monte’s specialty. Bosch’s Communications Systems Division, NSCA, and Monte’s family, friends and colleagues are grateful for the support expressed during the past week.
