Emory junior Jennifer Gorevitz is the first recipient of the Friends of Dance Scholarship for Summer Dance Study. The $500 scholarship was developed this year by the Friends of Dance to make summer study programs more accessible for Emory dance students.
The criteria for selection includes talent, involvement in Emory's dance program, enrichment to the Emory community through dance-related activities and commitment to the field. The application form included a four-page personal essay. The scholarship is the first one instituted by a performing arts "Friends" organization at Emory.
A sociology and human and natural ecology joint major with a minor in dance, Gorevitz will use the scholarship to assist her in a dance study program at the Tisch Dance Summer Residency Festival at New York University from May 20-June 28.
Cleaning up after the Olympic Games this summer will be a huge undertaking, and a host of volunteers is needed to help with the Olympic recycling effort. Faculty, staff and students are invited to participate in that effort by applying to become Olympic recycling volunteers.
Recycling volunteers must be at least 18; work a minimum of three sessions (morning, afternoon or evening) between July 19 and Aug. 4, or for "test" events from May 18 to July 18; undergo a security clearance by the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games (AGOG), if asked; and attend a three-hour orientation and training workshop at a mutually-agreed-upon time between May 1 and July 15.
The top two priorities for volunteers will be: to act as a roving ambassador for the recycling program, moving through a venue and educating and motivating spectators to properly use the recycling system; to monitor the operation of the recycling system to ensure that everything is operating properly and to report any problems to a supervisor.
For further information or to apply, call Recycling Coordinator Elaine Gossett at 727-1796.
