In 2000, the Dick Curless Memorial Scholarship Fund was established by the Pine Tree State Country Music Association and Pauline Curless to benefit music students at Bangor High School and to encourage Maine's stars of tomorrow. Every year on the first Sunday in June, many of Maine's top performers donate their time to perform at The Annual Dick Curless Scholarship Show. The 2017 recipient of the Dick Curless Scholarship is Natalie Lismet, a music student at Bangor High School. Natalie is a very talented musician and in the top 10 in Bangor High music program. She is a piano player and will be attending the University of Maine for music performance.
