Susan Emig was a brilliant musician/educator, an inspiration to all who had the pleasure to work with her. Susan was the wife of retired MHS choral director Roger Emig.
When her valiant battle with cancer ended Nov. 24, 2002, it was decided to create a scholarship fund in Susan’s name that would be awarded to a graduating Merrillville senior pursuing post-secondary education in music or the performing arts.
