WARSAW — The recipients of six Memorial Scholarships were announced at Debra Collier’s School of Dance.

Applicants were divided into age categories and each submitted a creative report describing the styles of dance from a decade of their choice. The recipients, Mackenzie Langhorn, Maci Parker, Annie Petro, Olivia Renier, Claire Walker and Ian Wallick, each received a class scholarship from the studio for the 2017-2018 annual season.
