The Shirley & Helen Povich & Rotary Scholarship in the amount of $2,000, is awarded to Alexandra Rydlizky, daughter of Victor Rydlizky and Heather Wagner.
Alexandra is currently enrolled at State University New York where she is pursuing a degree in Dance and a double major in Arts Management and Anthropology.
Alexandra’s letter reads like a well-choreographed dance. She too shared a glimpse of the depth of her passion for her chosen career when she shared how dance resonates on a deep, spiritual level and is confident in the power of dance to help others. I think we may have a young Martha Graham in our midst who was a 20th century pioneer of modern dance who once said “Dance is the hidden language of the soul.”
Alexandra we are honored to help you continue to your dance toward your dream. On behalf of the Association, congratulations and we wish you continued success!
