Beth Mitchell Memorial Scholarship
In memory of our 1998 National Non-Pro Champion, the National Shag Dance Championship Board of Directors established the Beth Mitchell Memorial Scholarship to assist in the education of worthy college students who have competed or whose parents have competed in the Nationals. Only major divisional competitors ( Junior, Pros and Non pros et,) are eligible for the scholarships. Collegiate “Shagging with the Stars” or any other of the non-major divisions are not eligible. In other words, all applicants must have competed in one of the five major divisions. Accounting and legal fees are paid by the N.S.D.C. Our fundraising goal is to acquire adequate principle, allowing the interest accrued to fund each annual scholarship. Contributions are welcome from shag clubs, businesses, families and individuals. The foundation is classified as a 501 (c) (3) for tax deductions.

The scholarship committee includes Beth’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Worth Mitchell; one member appointed by the family; and three appointed by the NSDC Board plus the NSDC Chairman as a non-voting selection member.
