Our final Senior Spotlight is Merritt!

Merritt has been a part of the MDC family for 12 years, dancing competitively for 9 years. Merritt has a wonderful eye for content creation, as you will see in the recap video played at the beginning of the show. Graduating from Memorial High School, Merritt plans to major in Public Relations at the University of Texas this fall.

Merritt is so grateful for all of the genuine, lifelong friendships MDC has helped her form. Her favorite memory is traveling to Seattle for Dupree Dance two years ago.

Her advice to younger dancers is that life is what you make of it. Stay positive, work hard, put your best foot forward, never give up, and have fun! Set goals for yourself and commit to reaching them!
