WARSAW — The recipients of six Memorial Scholarships were announced at Debra Collier’s School of Dance.
The scholarships, named in memory of former students Ashleigh Bruner, Jacquline Egolf, Kurt Engler, Emma Martin and Lori Rigsby and former dance parent Cindy Crane, were developed by the studio to offer opportunities to students through financial assistance and also encourage students through the recognition of their efforts. Applicants were divided into age categories and each submitted a creative report corresponding with the studio’s recital theme, “Your Ticket Please.” Each recipient submitted a report on a dance company they would like a ticket to see. Students were asked to describe what appealed to them about the company, what the dance company is known for, etc.
The recipients, Mya Heaton, Titiksha Gorhe, Bella Parker, Ali Lafferty, Adriana Rivera and Emily Carr, each received a class scholarship from the studio for the 2019-2020 annual season.
