The Brian Weiland Instrumental Music Camp Endowment Fund was created by the family of Brian Weiland in 1999 to honor his life.
Brian was born in Mason City Iowa in 1973. He was an active participant in the outstanding music program offered in the Mason City Iowa School System through his playing of the saxophone.
He also demonstrated a talent for drawing and cartooning. His love of sports included basketball, biking and swimming.
In November 1983, Brian lost his life while playing ice hockey with friends on the river behind his home. Shortly thereafter, Jerry and Sharon Weiland established a trust fund to perpetuate the memory of their beloved son.
The trust provides scholarships to high school students in the Mason City Iowa Community School District who have demonstrated a talent and interest in the field of music.
The fund created within the Community Foundation provides annual distributions in Brian`s name for the ongoing support of these highly prized scholarship awards.
