Corry Ethridge, Class of ’06, discovered his passion as a teenager and now is ready to launch a career in the field of dance.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FONDEST MEMORIES OF SRCS?
One of my fondest memories was when all the teachers sang “Walk, Don’t Run in the Hallways” at a concert we performed. Also, I loved our school spirit at sports games, especially during Catholic Schools Week. At the end of each Catholic Schools Week, we would all go to Jellybeans to skate.
WHEN DID YOU ATTEND SRCS?
I started kindergarten in 1997 and graduated from 8th grade in 2006.
WHAT WERE SOME OF YOUR INTERESTS WHILE AT SRCS?
I was on the soccer team in middle school and played on the basketball team in 8th grade. I also really liked P.E., English, and field day.
WHO WAS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE SRCS TEACHER?
There are several teachers that really stand out for me. Mrs. Wright, Mrs. Colopy, Mr. Elliott, and Mrs. Kucab were just a couple of my favorite teachers at SRCS. I have to say though, I really liked all of them.
WHERE DID YOU ATTEND HIGH SCHOOL?
I went to Cardinal Gibbons High School.
WHAT WERE YOUR INTERESTS AT CARDINAL GIBBONS?
I was on the dance team for my junior and senior years. I also participated in service outreach clubs and lead retreats as a senior for the other classes.
WHERE DID YOU ATTEND COLLEGE?
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Skidmore College this year (2014).
WHAT IS YOUR DEGREE IN?
Actually, I received two degrees, a B.A. in Dance and a second in Psychology.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO PURSUE THOSE PARTICULAR DEGREES?
After joining the dance team in high school, I knew I wanted to study dance and pursue it as a career. Fortunately, I found a college that provided comprehensive training and allowed me to tailor the program to my own needs.
With regard to psychology, my interest in the field was peaked after taking a class in high school.
What are your plans for the future?
Currently, I’m living in Saratoga Springs and working at my alma mater. My future plans include dancing professionally and possibly moving back to the south.
Thanks so much Corry and best of luck in your future endeavors!
