I'm happy to announce I will be serving as Dramaturge for Memphis, the musical opening at Parkland College in April 2018 directed by Jeff Dare. It is a challenging historical moment of music, race, cultural crossover and appropriation and I look forward to helping bring depth to this energetic musical.
It is an honor to be recognized with a Social Justice Award from the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, an organization steeped in a tradition of service.
I'm excited and honored to be selected as one of the Volunteers of the Year during the 50th Anniversary year of Prairie Rivers Network. I, along with Kate McDowell and Amy Hassinger were selected for helping to "tell the PRN story" during this year's activities. Thanks to PRN for all they do!
