A Celebration of the Life of Dr. Scott Beard
Dr. Scott Beard, provost and vice president for academic affairs, died unexpectedly on March 28, 2021. Dr. Beard was also a professor of music at Shepherd, earning his Bachelor of Music degree in 1986 from the Peabody Institute at Johns Hopkins University. He earned his Master of Music in 1990 and Doctor of Musical Arts in 1996 from the University of Maryland, College Park.
Administrator, concert pianist, and friend, Dr. Beard has left a void at Shepherd, and in the greater community, that will be exceedingly hard to fill.
