Highwood Received Distinguished Service Award
Highwood Receives Award for Distinguished Service to Public Education from the Montgomery County Board of Education
Thursday night, Highwood was honored to receive the award for Distinguished Service to Public Education from the Montgomery County Board of Education. We started our Highwood at School branch four years ago with the goal of providing support to the drama and theatre teachers throughout Montgomery, Prince George’s, and Fairfax Counties, and DC. Working in over 35 schools this year, we believe in the power of theatre as a key component of a child’s education - theatre reinforces concepts learned in traditional classes, teaches students how to collaborate and take responsibility for their actions, and pushes students to take risks and step outside of their comfort zones. We appreciate the work of all of the teachers and administrators we work with, and look forward to strengthening and building many more partnerships in the years to come.
The Highwood Theatre is supported in part by funding from the Montgomery County government and the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County, the S. Kann Sons Company Foundation, the William and Karen Tell Foundation, the Robert N. Alfandre Foundation, Wenger Corporation, and West Wing Writers.
