ERICA BRANCH RIDLEY SCHOLARSHIP
Erica Branch Ridley was our beloved friend and President of the Vanguard Board of Directors. She was the first one to help students who were not able to complete payment for our programs, even with financial assistance from Vanguard.
We have created a scholarship fund in her name to continue her legacy of generosity. Please consider donating to make sure that every child who wants to participate in the arts is able to, regardless of means.
