She was the recipient of a Musical Theater scholarship from the Dallas Dance Council and from the Dallas Summer Musicals Summer Workshops under Vicki Squires at the historic Majestic Theater in Dallas. Kendall went on to attend Oklahoma City University where she graduated cum laude with a degree in Voice from the Wanda Bass School of Music.
