Alexa is the first dance teacher hired by the Paso Robles elementary schools. Her work with the school system includes using dance instruction with children with special needs such as kids on the autism spectrum to engage more with their peers through dance.

Genevieve has voluntarily mentored hundreds of younger performing artists including dance and theater, through the Paso Robles Youth Arts Foundation, from which she is now graduated and attending college.

The awards, including an unrestricted stipend up to $1000, are given in recognition of the winner’s open mind, kind heart, and caring for others without expecting recognition or reward.

You can learn more about each of this year’s recipients on their profile pages.
