His legacy lives on in the form of annual scholarships that provide musicians with financial assistance to attend music camps like this one that John and his wife Sandy loved. The John Hugelen Cajun Music Scholarship gives aspiring Cajun musicians an opportunity for unique immersion in Cajun music and culture.
