Founded by parents Pamela Flickinger and Donald Muse for scholarships for Governor Thomas Johnson High School scholar/athletes and grants with preference for the performing arts.
Dustin and Courtney Muse were two Frederick youths with outstanding achievements. Most remarkable was their combined success. They were a rare find, as siblings who exhibited equally noteworthy accomplishments. Sixteen-year-old Dustin Muse was starting quarterback for the Governor Thomas Johnson High School football team. Known for his drive and determination in the sports in which he participated, Dustin also displayed scholastic success and in turn became a significant member of the high school and the Frederick community. A member of the Monocacy Middle School chorus and an honor roll student, Dustin’s younger sister Courtney was a bright 13-year-old who loved dancing, country music, playing the piano, and musical theater. Tragically, their promising, young lives were cut short when they died in a car accident in December, 2006.They are forever remembered through The Dustin and Courtney Muse Memorial Fund. The fund provides scholarships with preference given to Governor Thomas Johnson High School scholar/athletes who show leadership qualities, and grants, with preference given to supporting the performing arts.
