Alison Friedrich Outstanding Dance Officer Award
The Carrol Tigerettes announced the Alison Friedrich Outstanding Dance officer Award to be given in 2016.  Alison loved to dance and was a dedicated Tigerette Officer at Carroll High School before pursuing her career in audiology. She gave countless hours to choreographing routines, teaching dance, and leading the team as the Colonel. The responsibility of a Tigerette Officer comes with a lot of work – splitting time between academics and dance, it’s a position that is a life changing experience and opportunity. Holding a leadership position with the Tigerettes undoubtedly influenced Alison as a professional. In memory of Alison, the Carrol Tigerettes will start awarding the Alison Friedrich Outstanding Dance Officer Award and scholarship at the Tigerette Banquet every May to help other students pursue higher education.
