RHEAGAN CARROLL 15 Gene Pflug Scholarship
Rheagan Presley Carroll is a 9th grader who studies at Candy Crocker School of Dance in Tyler, Texas.
Tap classes are her favorite and at 11 she was invited to be part of her studio’s Elite team, allowing her
to perform at various community events throughout the year and have special pieces in the annual recital.
Being an Elite dancer also carries the responsibility of being a role model for the younger dancers.
Rheagan loves it when a mom asks her to help her little girl with a step, or she can give a few words to
encourage a little girl to keep trying.
Rheagan hopes to continue her summer dance education away from home. She would like to study
different kinds of dance to be versatile enough to someday dance on Broadway, perform as a
Radio City Rockette or possibly hoofin’ her way to being a Tap Dog.
