LiLi's Story

blue give badge that links to giving form

When deciding where to attend college, Butler University was among LiLi Pigott’s ’18 top choices not only for the excellent dance program, but the opportunities she would have outside of the dance studio.  During her four years on campus, LiLi transformed Butler Ballet’s social media from nonexistent to a rapidly growing presence. Her goal was to widen and strengthen the dance program’s awareness beyond Butler’s campus. In the process, she also broadened her understanding of the marketing world and now plans to pursue a career in performance arts marketing after graduation.
