Concordia has been blessed to receive two such gifts. The Marvin Brandt Scholarship Fund, named in honor of Concordia’s longest-serving principal, is specifically for providing tuition assistance to those students who would otherwise be unable to afford a Concordia education. The Jan Kiesgen Band Endowment, named after our dedicated and well-loved band instructor from the 1980’s and 1990’s, provides resources for the existing and future needs of Concordia’s Band program.
