Frank and Annette Pfeffer
Frank and Annette Pfeffer loved music, especially classical music. Annette was an excellent piano teacher who inspired many young people to enjoy music. Annette was not allowed to attend Cornell University (1928) because her mother believed that girls who go to college don’t get married!
After Annette passed away in 2006, her husband, Frank, daughter Phyllis Kurland (a Nassau Community College professor in the Office of Student Activities, SPS) and son-in-law, Paul Kurland donated this scholarship to the NCC Music Department to help a deserving music student realize his or her dreams.
The Frank and Annette Pfeffer Memorial Scholarship is awarded once a year, during the spring session, considering a student who is enrolled in the NCC Music Major Program or is a piano major.
