The Rowan Percussion studio is very proud of percussionist Christopher Cullen, a graduating electrical engineering major/percussion minor who was this year’s valedictorian of the Rowan University class of 2014!!!!!!!  Smart and talented, a great combination.

Congratulations also go to seniors Ryan Cullen and Glenn Dawson, both of whom were selected to receive a $1000 scholarship endowed by Steve Weiss in memory of his parents, Joseph and Bernese Weiss.  Good job guys!!!
