Two Students Honored

  CoSA student Mitch Connelly ('14) and  alumni Dakota Ringer ('12), both Musical Theatre & Drama students, were honored by CoSA theatre patrons Karen Dwinnell and Mary Jane Carpenter.  Each of these students had a seat in the CHS Performing Arts Main Stage Theatre named after them, thanks to the generosity of Karen and Mary Jane.

   Karen and Mary Jane have been following the progress of Ringer and Connelly over the past four years. "It's wonderful to watch these students come along in their careers, and we are proud to support them!" said Mary Jane. Karen and Mary Jane encourage others in the community to "Adopt a Performer" by coming to all the student's performances and supporting CoSA.

    The seat naming donation was made through the CoSA Foundation. There are three seat naming levels: Performer, Director and Producer. For more info on the Seat Naming Campaign, click here.
