Larkspur Scholarship Winner Olivia Wheat
Our smart little philanthropic dance powerhouse from Lee’s Summit North High School, Miss Olivia Wheat, will be going to Drury University this fall where she will pursue a degree in Elementary Education (I know! This former teacher is so excited!) with a minor in Special Education and Spanish. Olivia was a member of the awesome and award winning Lee’s Summit North Northern Stars Dance Team for 4 years, and was very involved in National Honor Society and the Bronco Smart program which had her going into elementary schools and educating the little ones on the dangers of drugs and bullying. She also did volunteer work with the Special Olympics, an endeavor that she found very rewarding. It was a pleasure to send Drury a check to help pay for Olivia’s first year! And check it out: she made the dance team at Drury!!!!! So happy and excited for her! Here’s a photo of her (front and center) with what are undoubtedly her new besties.
Something tells me she’s going to have so much fun! Congratulations, Olivia! Study hard, make healthy choices, use your time wisely, and enjoy your freshman year! We’re so proud of you!
Love and poms and all nighters,
