Tim Redovian Memorial Fund awards Anna Hughes of Dunwoody trip to Joffrey School of Ballet

Three DeKalb School of the Arts students have been awarded performing arts scholarships from the Tim Redovian Memorial Fund. Pictured at right is TRMF founder, Sherrill Redovian, with winners, left to right: Rachelle Clark, 16, Decatur, rising junior, American Dance Festival Six Week School at Duke University, NC; Alex Hassell, 17, Decatur, rising senior, Berklee Guitar Sessions at Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA; Anna Hughes, 17, Dunwoody, rising senior, Joffrey Summer Intensive at Joffrey School of Ballet, NY, NY.   On Saturday, August 17, winners of the TRMF scholarship will showcase their talents at the annual TRMF benefit concert at Dunwoody Baptist Church.
 Jim & Sherrill Redovian are long standing pillars of the community and many of you may also recognize Jim's name since he was our local representative on the DeKalb County School Board. In November of 1996, their son Tim, an accomplished actor at the age of 16 passed away suddenly of a viral pneumonia. Since that tragic event and in Tim's honor, the Redovian's created a non-profit charitable organization which has been funding scholarships to students with special talents in the performing arts.
