Senior Sharanya Balaji was featured in the San Jose Mercury News for her efforts to bring arts education to Grant Elementary School in San Jose. An avid practitioner of the ancient Indian dance style of Bharatanatyam, Balaji held a benefit dance show three years ago, raising $4,000 that enabled Grant Elementary to bring music, singing and dance lessons to campus. Last year, she held another benefit show and raised twice that amount. Her third dance concert was held Aug. 22, with the amount raised to be determined.
