The Robert W. Yavorsky Memorial Scholarship

We have for the past few years given scholarships to Norton High School graduates who are looking to use their experience in speech and drama activities at Norton High School in their future endeavors. During our production of “Cinderella and the Substitute Fairy Godmother,” which was also our first production incorporating children, we had the most tragic event that could happen occur.


Bob Yavorsky, a very dedicated member of Wolf Creek Players, appeared in all but the last school performance of “Cinderella.” He was feeling ill, and could not do the afternoon show. Sadly, he passed away the evening before our Saturday performance for the community. The cast and crew of children and adults experienced more about life than they signed up for. However, both young and old came together with strength and resolve to perform in honor of Bob….and the show went on. From that moment forward, we knew we would refer to the scholarship as the Wolf Creek Players/Robert W. Yavorsky Memorial Scholarship Award. Each year Wolf Creek Players has awarded multiple scholarships to students who wish to pursue a career in performing arts.
