Getting Involved

Hillcrest High theatre students continue to earn applause for their performances on the stage. On Monday, April 3, the nominees for 2023 Utah High School Musical Theater Awards were announced — and Hillcrest walked away with a whopping 10 nominations. I am not at all surprised Hillcrest’s production of “Catch Me If You Can” is nominated for Best Musical.  In fact, I would have been surprised if it weren’t nominated. It was simply fantastic!  We loved it. The cast and crew definitely deserve this nomination for being among the best in the state. When we attended the show, we found that our seats were right next to the father of the student who had the leading role. It was so much fun to sit next to the proud parent of the show’s star, especially because we’ve been friends for years. For being a nominee in the top category, Hillcrest students have been invited to perform a number from “Catch Me If You Can” during the May 13 awards ceremony at the Eccles Theatre in Salt Lake City.  I can’t wait to see them perform!  Here’s a list of Hillcrest’s nominations:

Best Musical — “Catch Me If You Can”

Best Actor — Jaren Ruff as Frank Abagnale Jr. in “Catch Me If You Can”

Best Ensemble Cast — “Oliver!”

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
