The Arizona Dance Education Organization (AzDEO) is proud to announce that they have awarded Cassandra Erhardt, from McClintock High School in Tempe, the state level Artistic Merit, Leadership and Academic Achievement award.
The state level award is based on the National Dance Education Organization’s (NDEO) National Artistic Merit, Leadership and Academic Achievement award. It is the highest award in dance given to high school students in the nation, and applicants go through a very rigorous process. AzDEO, a state affiliate of NDEO, adjudicates Arizona students who apply for the national award to bestow a state level award to any applicant that is judged in the top 15%. Congratulations to Cassandra.
