The 1st Annual Jerry Baber Awards was held this past Saturday at Dulles HS. The awards program was established to award students for their efforts and achievements over the year as well as to work to create a better community within the district. The unique quality about this program is that the shows are judged by the students themselves as each theatre director selects students to serve as ambassadors/judges and attend performances at other schools.
With Courtney Gilmore hosting on Saturday, the event proved to be a huge success as we honored both the memory of Jerry Baber, former theatre teacher at Clements and Kempner, and the students in our district.
As for results, we won 3 Jerry Baber Awards: Sophia Zekkour – Best Leading Actress for Fall Show; Best Properties for Fall Show; and Best Scenery for Fall Show.
