About the Scholarship
The Yelena Holt Excellence in Dance Scholarship is named in recognition of the founder of the NUHS Theatrical Dance Program, Mrs. Holt, who fostered a love of dance in thousands of high school students during her career. Many graduates from her program went on to pursue dance in college and as a career. In 2010, after more than 20 years in public education, Mrs. Holt retired from her illustrious teaching career.
The Excellence in Dance Scholarship provides a $500 award each year to graduating seniors of the NUHS Theatrical Dance Program who plan to pursue dance as a major or minor at a four year college/university. Students must fill out the District Scholarship Packet to apply for this award. For more information, contact the District Scholarship Coordinator, Barbara Ross, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
