Individual Contributions 2017 / Ormao Hill Scholarship Fund
We have been blessed with many individuals contributing generously to Ormao Dance Company because they believe in the life-changing, creative experiences and our collaborative community spirit. In 2013 we created the Ormao Hill Scholarship Fund to support dancers who have demonstrated a high level of dedication to the art of dance and a desire to continue studying dance in higher education. In 2013 our first award went to Ms. Heather Woolley who is enrolled at CU-Boulder. In 2014 our second award went to Ms. Oksana Kuzma who is enrolled at University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana. Our 2015 recipients are Ms. Melissa Stokes and Ms. Marley Ferguson Hautzinger.
Thank you, thank you, philanthropy makes our world go around!
