Make a donation to honor Monte’s memory!
“This industry is going to miss one of our great personalities and mentors.”
Bosch’s Communications Systems Division has partnered with the NSCA Education Foundation to establish the Monte Wise Scholarship, an ongoing scholarship named in fond remembrance of Monte Wise - “one of the pro audio industry’s great personalities and mentors“ - who passed away on September 30th, 2009. Monte was Systems Applications Specialist, Pro Sound, for Bosch’s Communications Systems Division.

“Monte touched many lives over the course of an exceptional career,“ says Daniel Nix, VP of Sales, Americas, for Bosch’s Communications Systems Division. “He was a mentor to many, and helped take hundreds of individuals and companies to the next level with education and technology. We were humbled by the amount of inquiries we received in the wake of his passing, from friends and colleagues asking “Is there anything we can do?’

“The creation of the Monte Wise Scholarship, in partnership with our friends at the NSCA Education Foundation, with whom I am proud to serve as a board member this year, answers that question: Yes! Please help extend Monte’s legacy as a great teacher in the art of sound reinforcement by making a donation to this scholarship. Monte was a talented musician, a true gentleman and a dedicated scholar - this will be a fitting tribute to his passionate work in the pro audio industry.“

“Monte’s excitement for his job was contagious,“ says Chuck Wilson, NSCA executive director. “This industry is going to miss one of our great personalities and mentors.“

Applicants will be chosen based on their goals and achievements in music, arts and sound reinforcement - Monte’s specialty. On behalf of Bosch’s Communications Systems Division, NSCA and Monte’s family, friends and colleagues - THANKS.
