Harrison Flint wins Century Club award

Publication: RecorderNews.com
Date: August 02, 2013

The GFWC Century Club recently awarded the S. Louise Bell Scholarship at its annual banquet held at Parillo's Armory Grill. This year the award, in the amount of $1,000, was given to Harrison Flint, a senior at Amsterdam High School and the son of Joseph and Deborah Flint of Amsterdam.

He plans to pursue a degree in dance and hopes to dance professionally in musicals and in theater. In the far distant future, when he is no longer able to perform, he hopes to use his degree in the field of rehabilitation helping youths and adults with disabilities.

He has been studying dance with Madame Phyllis Latin, director of the American Dance Center in Saratoga for the past three years. Although he has been dancing in excess of 20 hours weekly, along with an ambitious work schedule after school, he has managed to maintain an impressive 92 plus academic grade average. He has been an active participant in Drama Club, Sons of American Legion Post 701, JV football, varsity tennis, a member of the National Honor Society and was chosen for American Legion Boys' State in his junior year.

Flint has been accepted into the Joffrey Ballet School, a world renowned ballet training center, for their summer program and in their four year program which he will attending in the Fall. The Trainee Program of the Joffrey Ballet School is a four year post-secondary program that is both highly competitive and extremely intensive. It trains young dancers in the classical ballet technique and artistry required for an active career in a professional company.

The highlight of the evening was the presence of Patricia Burba Cleary, of Delmar, a recipient of the S. Louise Bell Scholarship given by the Century Club in 1948 when she was a senior at Amsterdam High School. Mrs. Cleary contacted the Century Club last year and expressed a desire to return the $750 award she received in 1948 stating that his award turned her life around by allowing her to go to college and become a nurse and later a teacher. She has always been very grateful for the GFWC Century Club award which she claims opened the door for her future.

Joyce and Lionel Fallows were also honored that evening since they are moving to Clifton Park in the near future. Joyce Fallows was a past president and a long time member of the GFWC Century Club.
