Congratulations to Ashley Hall, Lake-Sumter State College, selected as the Florida College System Activities Association Theatre Division Student of the Month for December. She was nominated by Professor Heather Elmatti.
Here’s what we learned about Ashley: “Ashley has been in four productions at Lake-Sumter State College. She starred as one of the leads in two of our Children's Theatre shows as the Princess in Princess Pigface and Maid Marian in Robin Hood. She is a cast member in the current production of Almost Maine. Ashley has also been a part of the backstage crew for several other productions including: Step On a Crack and Ex Miss Copper Queen on A Set of Pills. Ashley won a Student Leadership award for involvement in theatre and was awarded Best Supporting Actress at LSSC’s Theatre Arts Society (TAS) Awards ceremony. She also received an academic award for Outstanding Achievement in Communications courses in 2016-17. Ashley was one of the few students selected to speak at TEDxLSSC in September 2017 and did an excellent job presenting her talk on the impact of Implicit Racial Bias. Ashley currently serves as Vice President of TAS and takes an active role in helping facilitate and organize the group. Her enthusiasm and kind heart are a unifying factor. We are very proud of her hard work and accomplishments!”
Congratulations to this outstanding student, and our thanks to Professor Elmatti for taking the time to nominate her for this recognition!
