Many of you know that the 4X8's, the PNTSDF and this activity lost a very unique and exuberant member in 2017 when Andrew Huber passed away.
It hit our club and myself especially hard to have to say good-bye to such an extraordinary young man. He was an exceptional dancer, and developing into a very talented caller, but most importantly he was an extremely loving and caring person. Getting to spend hours and hours with him, and seeing him grow was truly a blessing. His passion for calling, and the square and round dance activity ran very deep. He was in fact on his way to dance lessons the evening he was tragically taken from us.
In honor of Andrew, a memorial scholarship will be presented to a recipient selected by the PNTSDF board of directors at the conclusion of the award ceremony during each festival. This scholarship is fully funded at $500 annually.
The funds will be divided in two payments. The full tuition price for attendance to The Cascade Callers School, will be paid to Steve
Noseck, while the remainder of the funds will be presented to the parent or guardian of the youth caller selected to be used for travel and lodging expenses.
All youth callers participating in the PNTSDF are eligible for the scholarship provided they meet all the criteria. Calling at or above novice level, but not professionally. Available to travel with an adult to CleElum (Circle 8 Ranch) for the school. Application is via submission (by April 1st each year) of a short essay on what square dancing means to them. The essay should be one page and will be used in determining the recipient.
