The Brian Isbell Memorial Scholorship

We are pleased to announce the creation of the Isbell Memorial Scholarship for L. D. Bell band seniors who will be attending a college or university this coming fall.

Brian Stephen Isbell was a member of the drum line here at Bell, and he graduated in 1993. Brian passed away in 2012, at the young age of 37. Brian’s life was immeasurably influenced by the experiences he gained and the friends he made in the L. D. Bell band program.  His family and friends wish to share some of the richness that Brian brought to their lives by offering this scholarship.

The scholarship will most likely be one award of $2500, but it may be split in order to award two students each a scholarship of $1250. There will be a committee of people reading the applications for the scholarship and the award will be announced sometime in April or May.

The application for the scholarship is below. It requires contact information, several open response questions, 2 letters of reference, and submission of an academic transcript.

The deadline for the application is March 25, 2019.


Thank you for your interest in the scholarship.


Family and friends of Brian Isbell and the L. D. Bell Band Boosters
