The Lisa Wells Memorial Scholarship
Lisa Wells served as UDA's official sewing costume seamstress for six years before her passing. On a weekend four-wheeling trip, Lisa was in an accident and broke her back. Due to complications with surgery, she lost her life, leaving behind a husband, Richard, and three daughters, Lindsay, Shalene and Megan. In loving memory, this scholarship was created to honor Lisa.
Since 2008, 41 dance scholarships have been given through the efforts of the Lisa Wells’ family, UDA recital ticket sales and the generous contributions of individuals and businesses in our community. This year the Well’s family has turned the Lisa Wells Memorial Scholarship over to Utah Dance Artists as Lisa’s 3 daughters have grown and moved to different states, which has made it difficult to pull the family together each year to run this event.
Due to the scholarship changing hands, changes have also been made in the application process as well as the overall mission of the LWMS, which is to “inspire and reward ones hard work, passion and dedication to dance” by providing a $1,000 scholarship to further provide dance education.
