Scholarships Available 

Is there a class you'd like to take but don't feel you can squeeze the cost out of your budget? Through generous donations, the CRI John Terrey Scholarship Fund has been established to help increase the opportunity to experience the CRI classes. Funds will be awarded as money is available.
