J.P. Williams Donates To Music Business Programs

J.P. Williams, CEO of Los Angeles-based Parallel Entertainment, has donated $100,000 to three scholarship funds.

A $25,000 gift goes to the Ron Baird Scholarship Fund at the University of Montana in Missoula, Mont., to be distributed to students in the Entertainment Management Program in a joint effort by IEBA and NATD. (Baird is the legendary head of CAA’s Nashville unit who passed away from Parkinson’s last year.)

A $37,500 donation will establish the J.P Williams Scholarship for five students at Belmont University’s Mike Curb College of Entertainment & Music Business.

The last $37,500 goes to a new scholarship in Williams’ name at Murray State University in Murray, Ky. NATD will distribute the funds to students in the Music Business program.
