We created The I Keep Dancing Scholarship as a tribute in loving memory of Julia Gardner, our sister, daughter and best friend. Julia, a longtime restaurant veteran, returned to school at the age of 27 after years of setbacks, to finally finish her degree. This journey wasn’t easy, and she often felt insecure about how long it would take to accomplish her goals. But she kept moving forward — with joy, and grace, and humor. She kept dancing.
THIS SCHOLARSHIP WILL HELP OTHERS KEEP DANCING, TOO.
