Rising Stars Scholarship

Supported  by a grant from the Reat Griffin Underwood Rising Stars Fund, the Rising Stars Scholarship was established to help young people pursue their passion for the performing arts. Reat loved singing, dancing, and performing and both the fund and scholarship honor his spirit and memory. Applicants are applying for assistance with dance, tumbling or private voice or piano lessons. To download the scholarship application, click here.
