Four Sunset students win full-tuition dance scholarships


Four Sunset High School seniors won full-tuition dance scholarships to the University of Texas-of the Permian Basin in Odessa.

The students, Diego Campuzano, Eduardo Quinones, Mariya Cano and Verenice Uribe, won the scholarships for folklorico dance, a style that celebrates Mexican heritage and culture.

Sunset dance director Leah Huggins said the students cried when they heard the news.

“We come from a neighborhood where college is not always an option, so the fact that they get to go for free is a huge, huge deal,” she says.
