A long-time Bethany College music professor and renowned Lindsborg musician will be honored this month by a national association.

Dr. Walter L. Pelz will receive the Faithful Servant Award by the Association of Lutheran Church Musicians during its national convention on July 21.

The honor is given to those who demonstrate a life-time of shared faith and dedication to the expression of worship and music in the chruch.

Pelz was with Bethany College between 1969 and 1989, when he retired to devote more time to composing and performing. He regularly performs recitals, in festivals and appears as a clinician for organ and choral workshops nationwide.
