The Roy Waldron drama team has been chosen as a finalist for the Playbill Community Service Award.
Voting is under way and will continue through Saturday, Jan. 13. Students, teachers, parents and supporters of the drama team can vote as often as they like.
“Our students work hard,” said Dr. Joanne O’Kain, spectrum facilitator and musical theater director, “and this is a great way for them to be recognized. Please share this link and let's get our hometown students lots of votes.”
The students came up with this idea of kindness towards their peers, according to O’Kain, who said Roy Waldon would receive $1,000 toward furthering their good works in the community if they’re chosen as the winner.
They are one of five finalists chosen from dozens of schools.
“Please vote for our team, Roy Waldron Drama,” O’Kain said. “It's free and you don't have to sign up to vote. You can vote as many times as you'd like. You can share on any and all social media. This is a huge deal if we can win. … They will announce the winner in Atlanta on Sunday.”
The team is preparing to travel to Atlanta for the Junior Theater Festival on Friday.
