Friend of the Castle Award Honoring Señora Elaine Alarid
The first Annual Friend of the Castle Award Honoring Señora Elaine Alarid was presented on November 9, 2016. The energy, attendance, words spoken by alumni dancers, the program, and sense of appreciation for Elaine as a teacher but also what Del Norte meant to the speakers was clearly present in Thibert Hall at Del Norte High School. Señora Alarid was selected for this award by the AlumKnights Board of Directors in recognition of her outstanding service in raising money for the AlumKnights Scholarship Fund. Señora Alarid, who sponsored Ballet Folklórico while she was on staff at Del Norte, gathered over 30 alumni dancers, then dedicated hours to rehearsing her troupe, arranging for professional accompaniment, and contacting many individuals and organizations to sponsor and attend the event. The Ballet Folklórico Alumni Concert took place on April 15, 2016 with the dancers and musicians performing to a full-house at the Del Norte High School Performing Arts Center. The event raised $3,000 for the AlumKnights Scholarship Fund, which will be used to continue the AlumKnights tradition of awarding deserving Del Norte graduates from the Class of 2017 with scholarships to attend New Mexico colleges and universities. It is with tremendous gratitude that we ost this event to honor Señora Elaine Alarid. Download the event flyer.
