Ron Montez Scholarship
The Ron Montez Youth Scholarship is a memorial fund which was established in 2021 as a legacy of Ron’s special fondness for teaching young people. This non-profit is a special project of the Jackson Ballroom Dance Club which is a 501(c)(3). The proceeds will be used to assist young people in ballroom dance opportunities that they otherwise would not be able to participate in.
In 2022 one individual between the ages of 14 and 24 will be awarded a scholarship for the tuition at All Star Dance Camp held June 12-16.
With Special Appreciation to Ron Montez Scholarship Sponsor:
