    O. Gordon Memorial Grade 4 Junior Piper of the Day Award at

Henry Marshall of Dunedin, FL. Henry is a 15-year-old
Highland Dancer who enthusiasm and love of the
Scottish Arts in his community has seen him
volunteering many hours outside of his dancing
practice and competitions. His goal of attending the
Oho Scottish Arts School this summer to hone his
craft is one we hope to help him reach with our
scholarship, and we hope to see him continue to
progress in his art.

We have awarded Henry a $500.00 scholarship to
help him attend the Ohio School of Scottish Arts
Sebastian Arguelles of Houston, TX. Sebastian is an
11-year-old Highland Drummer who is competing in
Grade 2 Individual Snare. Last year in the under 14
category he placed 4th at the World Solo Drumming
Championship in Glasgow, Scotland. Sebastian is a
dedicated and thoughtful young man with high goals
for himself and we hope to see him go far in
developing his talent.

We have awarded Sebastian a $500.00 scholarship
toward his competition travels this year.
Cameron Reid of  Loveland, OH is a 13-year-old
Highland Dancer and a first generation
Scottish-American. She has a love and joy of the
dance that truly impressed us and hopes to one
day become a teacher and judge. In 2013 she was
awarded the Best Overseas Dancer as Luss,
Scotland, and placed in the Championship at
Grandfather Mountain the past two years.  We
expect to see great things of this young lady!

We have awarded Cameron a $500.00 scholarship
