Dance Unlimited's Christi Thomas Memorial Scholarships 2014
Thanks to sweet family and friends who attended the dance recital last night. I'm so sorry I didn't make it back to the audience. As I said on stage last night, we knew this year's scholarship presentation would be especially difficult.Christi danced with all 8 beautiful Seniors and we have loved watching them grow up over the years and we look to them with great fondness because we see a bit of Christi reflected in each of these young ladies! They make us feel close to Christi and we love and adore them all! Almost all of them wrote about Christi in their scholarship essays and we thank them for sharing their personal and precious memories of her with us! We laughed and we cried reading the applications and trying to select our winner. Ultimately, we decided they were all winners and all needed to receive scholarships. Therefore congratulations to the $500.00 scholarship winners: Fran, Emily E., Emily F., Taylor, Kendra, Ceci & Kaitlyn. Congratulations to the $1,000 Christi Thomas Memorial Scholarship Winner: Allison Arnold. (Picture: Seniors with Shayla).
