Sausen's vocal music teacher, Teresa Schmidt, will also receive $500, and Notre Dame Academy will be presented $300 for its choral library.
Robert and Carol Bush established the endowed program in 2003 for the Dudley Birder Chorale. The program's aim is to promote vocal music within high schools, choosing from those communities represented by membership within the chorale. These communities include high schools from the counties of Brown, Outagamie, Kewaunee, Shawano, Door, Manitowoc and Oconto.
Auditions were held on Sunday, April 21, at St. Norbert College. Students were recommended to audition by their teachers as outstanding junior or senior vocal students in their schools. The judges were Dudley Birder, St. Norbert faculty members Kent Paulsen and Linda Feldmann, and with Lee Anne Scovell, a music educator at Holy Cross Catholic School in Green Bay.
